One is overwhelmed by the grandeur of the place, the superb harmony and extreme beauty. Look around yourself and you would have the impression time froze in the Renaissance Years....Those impassioned about photography do not need to search for angles or spots....every inch of the Old City is a piece of art..... Our favorite place and City in Europe (we are British)

You have to see this piazza as much during the day as in the evening, the atmosphere is awesome. This place is beautiful and so special. My favorite for sure in Florence. Went by every day or night at least once for the 8 days we were in Florence!

Got off the train, checked into the Globus Hotel, went directly to the Piazza del Duomo. Beautiful architecture. We had a great lunch..We made it to the Saturday Mass.. gorgeous church...it turned out to be just one of the many memorable churches we were going to visit during our 17 day tour of Italy. My wife just started to get warmed up to shop..

The Piazza does become very crowded, with vast numbers of people all photographing the Duomo - I wonder how many squillions of photos have been taken of it. But the crowds were friendly and good humoured while we were there and did not feel intimidating, and the square is refreshingly light on tourist-tat booths.

We took our time inside the large church and dome. Excellent site for photos. We suggest you arrive early and pay or the audio tour. It was excellent / useful. The lower area was intriguing!
