“Beautiful inside and out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Beautiful duomo. We were in Florence on the weekend so went to Sunday mass at Santa Maria del Fiore. On Sundays, it is only open for masses, not for touring, so plan your tour and picture-taking for another day. This is the most beautiful site in Florence!

“Beautiful Firenze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We reached Florence around 6.30am on weekend and hotel room was not ready. We left our luggage at hotel and started walking from one end of city to another. It was magical experience exploring beautiful streets, awesome architecture without any tourist. No word to explain this huge architecture wonder. Cathedral of Santa Maria is out of this world. Wish i could visit this beautiful gem every year :) ahh i am missing Florence already :(

“The climb was worth it !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Seeing this church was very moving; it is immense and beautiful. But the climb to the top of the dome was so memorable. You climb small, winding stairs that the workers used to build it, and then when you get to the top, you have a lovely panorama of Florence.

“Beautiful & Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

The jewel of Florence, the greatest feat of renaissance Architecture and Engineering. Do not miss visiting il duomo and making the climb to the top to get an amazing view of Florence.

Buy your tickets before getting on line. This is still a church so be respectful and dress appropriately.
