Owner description: Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio at the end of the 13th century, the Cathedral's trademark dome is now the symbol of Florence.

We had pre-purchased Firenze cards but still had to queue to enter the cathedral - only to be told we were at the wrong entrance! The cathedral itself is excellent (as are all in Florence!) but our trip to the top of the dome was fraught - access is via one stairway - very narrow and difficult to pass - and health and safety seems to be non-existent. Both my wife and myself came down less than impressed and rather shaken by the lack of safety measures

It's free (unlike many European Cathedra) : go in and you will be amazed at the scale of it all. Almost austere inside and opulent outside taking 130 years to build !!!

This is a good lively square and with many restaurants. The Duomo was beautiful and is very central area close to the Uffizi on one side and the Academia on the other side...

Another awesome must visit place in florence. Beautiful church outside especially as it is a bit more sedate inside, other than the beautiful dome. It's hard to miss once you are in florence
