A beautiful cathedral inside and out. We stopped every day to admire something different on the outside.

We purchased our ticket from a tourist centre down a street from duomo and chose our time. Luckily in Jan it was quiet so we could go on the next visit up the tower. It's a lot of steps with quite a few people in front of you and behind. You get a rest half way and can admire the... More

Lovely Cathedral, but has dress guide lines, so best to be aware before you arrive, (if I can find them I will edit this review). I didn't find this as impressive as the Cathedral in Siena, on the inside, but it is still a must to visit. Ran out of time to climb the Duomo, but will make sure I... More

The view of the Duomo from the park on the hill side across from the Duomo is absolutely fantastic. It is a site to be seen.

The Duomo in Florence is a beautiful church from the outside. Don't bother to wait in line to get into the church, there isn't much to see inside and it is rather dark. You may want to climb to the top of the bell tower.

We did this tour and the trip to the top of the Duomo. It's 410 steps and they can be steep and very narrow. If you have walking problems or breathing problems, it may not be suitable to do the climb. But if you're able to, it is SO worth it!! We lucked out with a clear beautiful day in... More

Tickets - pre-purchase - especially if you would like to go up the Duomo for which you will need to choose a time to climb! Tickets are for entry to the cathedral, baptisery, campanile and the Duomo. If you aren't great with heights or confined spaces, you may find this a difficult climb. During busy times, be prepared to squeeze... More

The church is huge and fits in wonderfully within this city. Looking at the city from afar it is clear that the church was built for this city. The dome is the largest brick and mortar dome in the world and the third largest church dome in europe. It is one of the easiest and most essential things to see... 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.
