The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Beautiful places to see. Watch out for gypsies and pick pockets. They have a lot of people gathered around.

The most incredible view.
Jul 2021
Find a place to sit and enjoy the view. The food and drink might not be the best in some of the places surrounding the Duomo, but the view will be something you will remember forever!

An amazing building with its amazing dome by Brunelleschi, it is quite a sight to behold, something I did many times while visiting Firenze. Both inside and out are amazing!

Where all the 'expensive' action is
Jul 2021
It's the main attraction area in Florence. I would avoid the fancy looking restaurants in this area. Even the gelato costs more than elsewhere. On the backstreets running off this piazza there are many fine restaurants and shops. That being said, just walking around this magnificent building was worth it. It is amazing.

Just to stand in the shadpw of the duomo and look up is worth the trip to florence, even if you do nothing else while here. It is impressive.
