Pizza del Duomo is wonderful to look at as always but it has become way to crazy (busy) during the high season. The number of tour groups seems to have multiplied. Go during the off season if possible

So blessed to have been able to experience the spectacular wonder. It will bring you to your knees! It is worth the wait in line. Make sure for women, that your shoulders are not bare and that your knees are covered.

The Duomo is a must see. The outside is mesmerising, you can sit and look at it for hours. Huge queues to go inside, which is disappointing compared to the outside. My advice sit and enjoy the view outside

Majestic and awe inspiring, the sheer size of the structure and the impressive dome are even better in person than in any book or guide.

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
