The architectural quality and design is stunning. Look up the technical details for the cupola and remember this was built by hand! Unfortunately most of the artworks have been removed. Visit to the catacoombs is an extra fee.

Sooo I’ll start with the whole experience is well worth it! That being said this story is more for those who are clusterphobic and have fear of heights... PS to climb the Duomo you need to reserve the time (mandatory). As you can imagine stairs...More

The inside of the Duomo is spectacular but you have to climb the tower next to the duomo. The view is amazing. I recommend at sunset when the color of the city turns into a bright gold color

The beauty and amount of details is amazing. If you want to take pictures from outside I suggest you to do both during the day and evening. Amazing pictures

If you are there in the Fall, you must see the mosaic floors of the Duomo. They are unique. Photos don't do the experience justice. Read about them before you go so you can soak it all in..

Wow!! Thats what you will say when you take a look at the outside and inside of this massive building! It is so huge that you can notice the dome of this church from anywhere in the city! A must-visit during your stay in Florence.

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

Hi Jan, You are best off booking on-line for the Dome climb ! You can queue but you may turn up when several bus loads have disgorged their hordes !! Plus with a booking you can't miss !
