You need to visit here. We had a guided tour and it was wonderful to find out the history of the Duomo. You must climb to the top for wonderful views.

Stunning from the outside and even more impressive from the inside. Wonderful architecture and frescos. Was very busy but still had a feeling of serenity. Climbing the tower is a challenge- only attempt if reasonably fit as you are always under pressure to keep going.

The Duomo is iconic to Florence and if you are willing to hike up the steps to the top, the view is your reward. The stairs up can be claustrophobic, but once you get up top you have an amazing 360 view of the city. Get there early to beat the line.

The ticket should be purchased online before coming to Florence and includes the visit to the Dome, the baptistery, the museum, the tower and the script. It costs 15 euros. The Dome is very nice. The frescoes from Varonese are beautiful and the dome itself is as well beautiful and interesting. There are more than 400 stairs to climb but... More

Beautiful building, fantastic architecture. It looks good from the outside and then gets even better inside. The dome is the main attraction, the paintings are brilliant. We were limited on time as we had to get back to our coach, could have spent longer there. Really nice place. Highly recommend a visit here.

Beautiful building in the heart of Florence. Love the architecture of this place. In the night the dome lights up and it is breath taking. Please take time to look at all the intricate details, the ceiling is a must see too. I wish we had more time in Florence, we just had one day. If you want to see... More

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.
