The Duomo is stunning, my partner did the tour to the top, but due to a back injury I couldn't do it, so I sat in a little bar in the sun shine opposite the dome tour entrance, and sampled a local beer whilst watching the world go by...fascinating. Every nationality , cyclists navigating the crowds, gypsies begging, Segway tours, happy people, people in love, even angry frustrated people, you have them all performing for your delight.

Beautiful is what I would call the whole experience!The Duomo is beautiful!Go inside and light a candle.Outside its one of the liveliest piazza in Florence.You can sit outside in one of the many cafes and just admire this heritage monument from outside....it's marbelled white exterior is outstanding,all while you enjoy your cappuccino or hot chocolate drink from Lindt and just absorb the vibrancy of this place!A must see when you are in Florence!

The Piazza del Duomo is gigantic. but very dirty. They should clean some top sharp. However, “DO NOT MISS IT”

Nice piazza, great view on the Duomo. Try taking a relaxing little capuccino next to the Renaissance greatest architectural symbol!

Not only is it breath-taking at first glance, but it's also worthy of a stay. Grab a seat. Take photos aplenty. People watch. Shadow watch (as the sun progresses, so do the gorgeous Duomo shadows). Enjoy.

Just make sure if you get hungry to duck down a side-street. Anywhere too obvious will be expensive and lack flavour.
