Unusual light unforbidding cathedral but like st Paul’s a bit squashed in its square. But on its way to see David .

The church is huge and is stunning. The red dome dominates the Florence skyline. The church is well worth seeing. It is located in the old center city, and is surrounded on all sides by shops and restaurants.

Visiting the cathedral square is a must. Adorned with marvels of masonry and every colour of marble the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Giotto's Campanile are incredible feats and what brings everyone to the square. However every where you turn there is...More

It saddened me to see that you had to pay to enter the church, (something is wrong with that concept) but the exterior certainly was beautiful. You must see it at night as well. don't miss the golden doors.

Great for people watching and for enjoying the street musicians. The weather was warm enough in the beginning of November to be outside and enjoy the beautiful cathedral and the street performers.

While crowded this is a beautiful building. Take the time to walk the 400+ steps and go up on top. The views of Florence will not disappoint on most days. Stay healthy and follow that up with another 400+ up the bell tower. If you...More

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
