“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Beautiful inside and out! The long line was daunting, but it moved fast and we were in after just a few minutes. Amazing paintings on the inside of the dome.

“The Best Is On The Outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Make sure to have a guide or a book that goes into all the details on the outside of this cathedral. The inside was, as I had remembered it, uninspiring, sorry but that's the way it is. It is however worth it to climb to the dome to view the frescoes up close and then carry on to the tippy top for a view of Florence.

“Beautiful Skyline”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Highly recommended. Wait time is long so try to reserve a spot when you can. Tourist trap so be aware of the other people.
