I am not a huge fan of churches and about the only church I can recommend is St. Peter's, which I realize is a possible heresy. I walked through because it is worth going by and seeing the piazza. Frescos are nice, as are about...More

It is free to enter the Cathedral, but if you want to climb up to the dome for fantastic view, you have to buy a ticket. First of all, the ticket office is a bit apart from the Cathedral, across the northern facade of the...More

It is really worth climbing the 400+ steps to the top of the Doumo. The views are spectacular. Allow plenty of time, the stairwell is very narrow and takes time to allow other visitors to pass. It too us around 30 minutes to leave the...More

It is well worth going up the dome if you can climb many steps and don't mind confined spaces. The views from the Dome and the Bell Tower are different enough to warrant both, even though it is exhausting at the time.

Being at the top of the Duomo is a wonderful experience. My wife and I have climbed the incredible number of steps twice and recommend it highly.

The actual dome was beautiful, but the rest of the church seemed a little simple on the inside. I feel like it's true beauty lies in the exterior of the church which is absolutely stunning. We only ended up having to wait 4 minutes to...More

It is difficult not to be awed by this cathedral. Don't forget to go inside, visiting the main cathedral is free. The tickets are for the extra parts like going up the dome or the bell tower. Unless you have a great love of climbing...More

A long and winding climb but worth the effort. Great views all across the city. For those of a nervous disposition stay away from the edge.

This is absolutely masterpiece among cathedrals worldwide. So detailed, so rich, so florentine...It was amazing to be on the roof, also to see frescoes from so close. Breathtaking experience.

The Duomo is gorgeous. If visiting Florence, this is a must see, Loved climbing the dome and the bell tower.

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

While looking at the front doors of the Duomo, walk around to your left along the side. You will find the side entrance around 200 feet from the front. Arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than your assigned time. You can... More
