The view from the top of the dome is breathtaking. It is quite high so you better be fit, wear a good pair of shoes and bring a bottle of water with you. Be sure to book in advance, especially during high season. We arrived...More

The duomo is always my first stop on any visit.No entrance is nice but there is small fee for the crypt and a fee to climb the 2 towers. The outside is great for pictures.Inside is nice with interesting history.

It is absolutely remarkable to see this structure and the ability for it to stand the test of time - let alone the intricacies of the cathedral design and the ability to create such a structure centuries ago. We went to the top of the...More

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
