With an Italian family from Feltre, as our company, my family of four toured Firenze & all over Toscana. Firenze is one of my most precious places on Earth I've visited so far. La Piazza del Duomo is stunningly beautiful & filled with graceful Italian people. There are endless fashion racks of fine lino clothing to peruse all around. There's... More

The piazza is absolutely amazing - 5 of the best and picturesque architectural achievements in history in one square! We decided to buy a €15 euro ticket (valid for 48 hours from first use) covering the Cathedral, Cupola, Baptistery, Bell-tower, Crypt, and the museum. Worth every cent.

The Piazza is absolutely beautiful, regardless the weather and the time of the day or year. All the buildings there are having thei own spirit.

So much to see in this piazza--the gorgeous Bapistery, the Cathedral, the Bell Tower, the Museum...plan to spend a few hours soaking in the art and the history. At night the buildings are flooded in spotlights.

Don't miss this landmark. We must have stood there with our mouths open for an hour! Picture after picture. Walk around and read all the informative little signs. In the middle or tail end of restoration work and does have some scaffolding around. There are numerous places to sit outside in the piazza and have a meal while being able... More

A visit to Florence must include the piazza. Here is one of the most beautiful churches in the world. It is an interesting sight to see, since it is tightly hidden within a myriad of many buildings that shield it unless you are almost on top of it. It was breathtaking for us as we turned the corner from one... 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.
