Beautiful building impressive and stunning!

We only saw the outside as we only had a few days to see Florence.

The only thing is we had to run the gauntlet of touts selling you tickets to get inside and all other sorts of things you didn't need. Every single time we walked past we got accosted by one of them...you politely say no but they are a nuisance!

Another beautiful building very near the cathedral. Only saw the outside of it on this trip. Maybe will go inside on our next visit.

I love everything about the Battistero, its history, reference in literature, and the amazing mosaics on the ceiling.
Entrance is included with the Opera Del Duomo ticket and it was all well worth it.

The Bapistry at the Florence Duomo has so much history, I would like to narrow my focus to the "East doors" of the Bapistry. The doors were made by Lorenzo Ghiberti who won a contest to make the doors. The doors were so beautiful that they were referred to as the "Gates of Paradise".

In 1990, the original gates were removed and placed in the Duomo Museum ( " Musso dell'Opera del Duomo.) A replica of the "East Doors" replaced the originals of the "East Doors".

Remember, try to get all needed tickets especially for museums on line to save waiting in the ticket line.

It's just one room but it's lovely, with a 700 year old plus mural of religious motifs. It's a bit noisy despite the signage, but photogenic
