This is a good way to examine the Duomo and Baptistry from the outside, which is full of scuptures and architectural items. But beware the crowds of tourists!

This is a stunning Piazza. You walk into it and see these majestic, ornate buildings and you cannot help but get blown away. Its a busy piazza,lined by caffes, men selling paintings, little knick knacks, souvenirs and tons of tourists trying to get into the monuments. Do not miss this Piazza.

Lots of stairs but it is worth the view from the top of the Dome. Stairs are tight at the top so fi you don't like small spaces then not recommended. Walk around the Piazza and inside the Dome also for complete atmosphere of this ancient building

I will remember this piazza for the entire buzz around it, where you could see all kind of people and so much of activities going around. From tourists, to street vendors selling paintings (an illegal affair though) to horse drawn carriages, a few artists, and of course the majestic architecture around, it had everything that describes this town. This is like a pantheon of activities in itself. If you visit Florence, this is one place you 'WILL' visit, and it was a pleasure to do that.
