Plan your day well as we spent too much time elsewhere and did not manage to get inside this church. Enjoyed from the outside only.

We ended up spending hours here. The Cathedral is itself gorgeous and worth the visit, and it sits on a complex with much to explore. You don't have to spend hours like we did, but there is a lot there to admire.

This is worth the time to stand and gawk up at the incredible facade. If you can book a walkabout tour guide...do it. And ensure they know about this site.

come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
