“Soak in the Duomo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Walk, look, sit, walk and soak in the external beauty of The Duomo. Make sure to enjoy this piazza by both day and night, as with everything, it looks completely different with the lights and the moon!

“Great to People-Watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Walk around the church, watch the people -- don't get gelato here unless you want to pay an arm and a leg!

“Beautiful Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My wife and I have been to Piazza del Duomo quite a few times over the past 12 years. It is becoming increasingly crowded, as is all of Italy, but we’ve enjoyed the piazza every time we’ve been there. The façades of the Duomo, the Santa Maria del Fiore, and its accompanying Campanile are incomparable, astounding, and they can be easily viewed from the piazza. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, from the piazza it’s also easy to see the long line of those waiting to enter the Santa Maria del Fiore.
