“a great cathedral... add with a nice hike for a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

this is the most beautiful building, cathedral in all of Florence and may be of Italy..
the Duomo is built with great design and artwork.... the colors are simple yet it magnifiy the great detail with its statues and complex design of the cathedral

recommend to do is to hike the steps up the dome.. to see the cathedral from top.... see the artwork on the dome.. and make your way up to the observation deck.. for a breathtaking beautiful view of Florence...

the steps inside the hike can be dark and tight... but take it slow and you will be fine...

you wont be disappointed..

you will definitely enjoy the view from the top of the Duomo

“TAKE THE CLIMB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The whole complex of the cathedral & campanile in the piazza are beautiful. We visited the interior of the duomo - art & architecture that was quite amazing to behold. We climbed to the top of the duomo and very much enjoyed the maginificent view of this magnificent city.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is simply amazing. I did not go inside, but I was floored by the sheer size and the architecture. There were countless little paintings adorning the building. It was incredible and a must-see if you are in Florence.
