The center and identifying symbol of Florence. Beautiful façade and interior. Be sure to visit the baptistery.
Besides the wall hangings, stained glass, etc, do not ignore the floor details or the basement. Rather empty place on cold day in November. Would be good to read about this building before visiting.
The Duomo dominates the sky line of Florence and is simply amazing from wherever you view it. Its well worth the climb to the top for the most fantastic views over this beautiful city.I have been to Florence many times and the Duomo never ceases to amaze me
A must see in Florence. The enormity of this visually stunning structure is nothing short of spectacular. If you are not faint of heart you must climb the dome to the top. The views of the vistas are beautiful. It is narrow and long but well worth it if you can do it.
This Duomo is better on the outside than in. It is worth getting ticket and going to the top of the dome. It is a lit of steps and narrow at the last bit but worth it. The ticket also gets you into the Baptistry which is amazing
This is a must do when visiting Florence, you can go all the way to the top of the duomo and see the interior paintings quite close. With the same ticket we also climbed the tower to the side of the Duomo.
The design is amazing. When you see pantheon in rome and St Peters Dome in Vatican, you will see the importance of this dome in history of architecture. You should climb the dome to see between shells and how the overall design held up without scaffolding.
The paintings on the interior of the dome are fantastic and even better if you climb to the top as you do most of your climb inside right below the paintings before you emerge outside to view all of Florence laid out around you. Spectacular!
I expected the view from the top to be amazing, and it was. What I didn't expect was the opportunity to see the interior of the dome up close. The winding stairway opens into the dome twice at two different heights. It was great to get this closer look at the artwork decorating the interior of the dome and it... More
Wonderful activity to do...a must when in Florence. We took our teen daughters and they loved it. It was wonderful getting up so close to the art in the dome. Can be a bit scary in parts during the climb but so so worth it!!!
