The extraordinary masonry and detail of the architecture this square is too beautiful for words and not be missed. The combination of colors dancing as the light of day changes is dazzling. Stand back and just soak it all in.

Don't miss the square. It's a great way to get orientated with Florence's city center. Use it as a landmark during your stay. See it at night by all means and bring your camera.

Gorgeous dome made of Italian marble. Some surrounding restaurants are not so great, taking advantage of location. Beware. Nice to go on top of the dome's tower. the view is top notch.

The best monument buildings in Florence are all around this piazza, you´ll be able to enjoy the cathedral and its famous Bruneleschi´s dome, the baptistery and the beautiful bonze doors.

I hate heights but had to go to the Duomo. A bog part of going to the Duomo is to see it up close rom the outside. There was good bustle about the place, I guess from excited tourists expectantly excited to be at a globally recognised landmark

This basilica is just amazing!!! All white and green marble (when cleaned). The details, the architecture incredible. It took more than 175 years to build.

We went for a walk to the Piazza del Duomo on evening of the day we flew to Florence. The sky was already quite dark already and, after some time in a restaurant we came out to see the white campanile floodlit against an indigo backdrop. Stunning. There is so much white marble on churches in Italy that after a... 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.
