The Piazza deal Duomo contains the third- largest Catholic Church in the World (and to my eye the most beautiful), the Duomo or Bapistry with the doors Michaelangelo called the "gates of heaven". See it in the late evening after the crowds and the heat have abated.

Nothing like this in any other place. Simply stunning architecture and very well preserved too. The place is always crowded.

Really wonderful, could do with a clean on parts. Bring water in summer as a real sum catcher The dome can be seen from all over the city, nothing like it anywhere else in the world really.

This is a very nice square to spend some time specially at night when it is more fresh. There is a lot of bars and restaurants that you can visit.

The Duomo is an imposing architectural structure. It is strikingly beautiful and dominates the area. The piazza can be exceptionally busy at the height of the tourist season and so be prepared to queue if you wish to see the inside of the cathedral. However, early or late visits are more likely to gain more speedy entry. We enjoyed a... More

If you're hoping to see the Duomo inside, you must buy tickets ahead of time, otherwise you will be stuck in line for hours! We did the hike up the Bell Tower and it was a much better use of our short time there <3 Well worth the 14 Euro!

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
