From the outside unbelievable, but a bit of a dissapointment when you entered. A bit "Naked" inside. This seems typical for churches in Florence as most of the paintings are in the local museums, but more so for the Cathedrial. But in all you cannot visit Florence without visiting it.

We were awestrcuk by the exterior once we came into the piazza, it takes your breath away! This giant cathedral is truly stunning, and an architectural wonder. Climbing the dome - if you don’t mind narrow staircases, many steps and aren’t afraid of heights this should not be missed. There is a great view of the city and off into the Tuscan hills. Worth the climb!
The dome entrance is on the left hand side of the front of the cathedral, second doorway around, and when you reach the top you can walk outside, around the dome, to see the view.

All visitors to Florence should see the incredible multicolored marble facade of the Duomo. The interior is fabulous too.
