Outside it’s and amazing piece of architecture but don’t bother joining the long queues to go inside. It might be free but one of the most underwhelming interiors of the buildings you can visit in Italy.

What a fantastic thing. Built out of marble, even the coloured bits are genuine coloured marble not died or painted. A real wonder of its time a must see for anyone visiting this fantastic city.

Do some reading first about the church and Florence and you'll enjoy your visit here much more! There are a ton of great books on the some, the history of Florence and so on which will help you understand what you're seeing here.

This square is always full of people from all nationalities. The highlight is the Duomo and the Battistero. It is nice both morning and night.

Amazing atmosphere, beautiful architecture. If you are there for Easter you must go see the exploding of the cart and procession (google for more details) as it is quite a spectacle. However, don't bother queuing to go inside the Duomo - we found it to be the most disappointing and sparse inside compared to many of the other gorgeous churches in the town centre (e.g. San Lorenzo or the Church of the Annunciation).
