Lots of places to eat where you can see the beautiful cathedral, climb the campanile and the Duomo, the Baptistry is completely breathtaking. Well worth the price of 15 euros to see all the monuments and the museum. Beware of the queues, they are insane - buy your ticket in the morning (10am-ish) and then wait until after lunch 3pm...

We came in August and it was so busy, trying to take photos was impossible with so many people. And the people selling roses and crap let the beauty of the place down. They were rude and pushy, not taking no for an answer. But overall it is a beautiful place to walk through and have dinner there along the... More

The queues to get into the Duomo were too long, so we just walked round the square. It's a great place to take pictures of the iconic cathedral.

With all the site seeing to do, we found we needed a break. We realized that just having a cocktail at one of the many surrounding restaurant patios was a great way to unwind after learning about all the history, art, and culture the city has to offer. It was around 6pm when the crowds thinned that we got to... More

Impressive Piazza. Lots of photo opportunities and an equal number of selfie stick sellers. Be prepared to queue for the Duomo and Bell Tower. Don't be fooled in to paying €15 for a tour as entry to the Duomo is free. Plenty of Police and army on patrol in the area so feels very safe.

Great way to see the outside of the cathedral, Giotto's Campanile, the Florence Baptistery, the Loggia del Bigallo, the Opera del Duomo Museum, and the Arcivescovile and Canonici's palace

The massive size of this structure is overwhelming. We did not go in but we marveled at the beauty of it. The green and white coloring made it unique among the many Churches and Cathedrals we saw on our trip to Italy.

The architecture is breathtaking! Simply stand there and admire the carvings. Couldn't get enough pictures as every angle is simply stunning. We ate some gelato and lunch at the piazza too. So fun!

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.
