Owner description: This large city square contains the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, the third largest cathedral in the world after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London.

kind of creeps up on you as you enter the square but very hard not to be in awe of the cathedral. personally think its more impressive from outside it and definitely get some ice cream or drinks and chill in the square

Well parked in central underground, busy Yes, but parking fee good value. Stepping from the parking lot into a grand central shopping market (reminded us of East Street Market - London), as we turned out and around the corner - WOW WOW WOW! the glare of sunshine upon the Duomo and truly fantastco! Billisimo!
Take the horse and cart ride if you can, but the guide was rubbish in the sense you could not hear it, as lovely as he was, it would have been nice to have those ear pieces. Non the less it was romantico even with your children!
When the ride is finished the walk is even better, each corner you turn is history to light up sore eyes with architecture and the balls of statues , if your shy you soon get over the naked values!

A must when in Florence despite the crowds. Make sure you go and visit the baptistery as well as the museum of the cathedral. And do not eat or drink on the square as it is going to be more expensive and not as good as further away

We stayed close to the piazza so often passed through. It was a real pleasure to be here. We bought the €15 ticket so we could visit everything. Not to be missed; this is a really beautiful place! I wish I could give it more than 5 as a score.

To walk these streets and come upon this magnificent Florence Cathedral with the Cupola del Brunelleschi, Giotto's Campanile, Baptistry of St John and other early marvels makes recent inventions and marvels pale.
