This is an interesting building to visit, but will not take much of your time unless you have a great interest. A wonderful sense of calm as one would expect.

The cathedral is a lovely place to visit if you have time in Florence. There are so many places to see in Florence and this is just one of the many magical places to see. Well worth it!
