“Go up the Tower.....”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

If the queue for the Dome is too long then try the tower.....its a little lower but not much and the views are brilliant and well worth it. I went straight to the top but as I went down I realised there were still some great views on each platform. And here is a tip.....if the safety grating is too small for your camera the concrete below it isnt!! So get on your knees and the space for a lense is ideal.

“Heaven in Florence!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed at a hotel nearby this Piazza and I have to say it's just perfect. We really enjoyed this area. Just relax, sit in the sun and watch people go by... it's just amazing! Don't forget to try Gelato as it's the best in the world. I love Florence very much! See my photos and please vote for me if you find this review helpful. Thank you very much.

Wonderful to see site you have heard about for decades. Amazing to think it took nearly 200 years for the church structure to be built.

“Crowed, crowed and crowed.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

What could be a enjoyable experience tends to be a nightmare.
You may feel, like we did, surrounding by cattle (ot tourists). Noisy, stressy, smelly.
