This building is large and quite ornate on the outside. Walk around the entire building for the full experience. Also lovely on the inside. We visited around 4:00 and walked right in. There was a line (maybe an hour) to climb to the top, but...More

Beautiful Cathedral with an interesting history. The bell tower was closed when we were there, but we did climb the stairs to the dome. We bought the ticket to visit the dome when we were downstairs touring the museum/ gift shop area; finding where to...More

The magnificent part of the Duomo (cathedral) is the outside. You can buy a ticket which will give you access to a number of buildings but if you want to go up to the dome you need to book a time when you purchase the...More

A stunning 'visual' as you approach the piazza and see this beautiful gothic cathedral. Arrive early to avoid the line-ups, and rent the audio guide to give you a better understanding of the history of the cathedral. We did not due to lack of time,...More

Our visit to the cathedral was short but sweet. The inside is a measure less grandiose than the outside. As part of the joint ticket you can gain entry to the dome with a timeslot. The climb can be intense for those not used to...More

The 15 euro ticket to visit the attractions to Duomo is well worth the cost, The highlights being the views from the top of the Duomo and Campanile di Giotto. Great value to help restore and retain these magnificent pieces of architectural history.

It was okay. After awhile they start looking like each other. It was okay. I preferred the Galleria more than the 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

It is the main entrance to the church that you want. It is right at the front of the church. The entrance to the duomo is to the left, in back, by the museum.
