Been here twice, and seeing Michelangelo's Pieta alone is worth it. Stop in, and stay as long as you care.

Loved seeing the models of the cathedral dome. Make sure you go up to the top floor. The view of the Doumo is unparalleled. So is the collection, including the original doors.

Interesting re-creation of what the church looked like in the planning stages. This museum is also newer, so it was nice and cool inside.

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
