“Breathtaking”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

If art and architecture are what you are looking for then this is the place to be in Florence. The Cathedral and the doors of the Baptisterium can absorb your attentions for hours. The details and artistry are fabulous. I run out of adjectives.

Reviewed October 28, 2012

Lots of people - this is good for the atmosphere but bad for who hates the crowd. Yet this is Florence, lots of tourist because it deserves it :) It is so beautiful! Old buildings and works of art mix very well with people eager to see them.

“We kept going back”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

A magnifcent piazza that is breathtaking. It seemed like we wound up here every time we went out It has three of the most important religious buildings from the Renaissance, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Il Duomo), Giotto's Bell Tower, and the Baptistry with Ghiberti's bronze doors. Lots of funs stuff located around the piazza also. Great markets, great people watching and the Duomo. Go during the day and then go again at night when it is less crowded. Walk through the little streets around the Piazza and discover old Florence.
