The one museum which is not to be missed. The original East baptistry door along with the north and south doors of the baptistry are the highlights. So is Donatello's wooden carving of Mary Magdilane. Go early , takes aprox 1 1/2 hour max. We spent 9 days in Florenxe and this was definalely a high point.

Do not miss this museum. You will see the original artwork such as the Gates of Paradise here. You do not need a timed ticket. There are also very good models helping to understand how the Duomo was built and a nice, short movie which runs in both Italian and English.

You'll learn a lot about the Duomo, see some interesting movie-style exhibits. We did the dome tour and went out on the rooftop - an awesome experience highly recommended!!

We almost did not go in here but we had some extra time one afternoon and decided to go in as it is included on our ticket. We are glad we did - interesting displays and art as well as seeing the tools and a short film about the building of the dome. It is modern and well laid out... More

This is just an incredibly well done museum. It's usually not crowded - it's a nice break from the intense crowds often found in other parts of the city

I didn't know about this museum, until I took the online ticket to see the Duomo.At that point, when I saw the combined ticket, I included it on my list.Modern,well organized,it offered me an image about all these masterpieces-Bruneleschi Duomo,Campanile di Giotto and Baptistery-that helped me to see them in a different perspective.Like any other place in Florence, you can...

While you are visiting the Piazza del Duomo you might as well visit the Museum dell'Opra Del Duomo that was created to preserve the best works of art from the Cathedral di Santa Maria del Fiore (or Il Duomo di Firenze as it is ordinarily called) from the harmful effects from vehicle pollution. The center piece are the original Bronze... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
