Can't truly recall the name of that soap shop, but it's right there within Piazza Duomo and that shop is AWESOME!! Spent over €54 within and if I had more space within my luggage, I would've spent more. DEFINITELY going back here in September 2018!!!

If you’re looking for something to buy around the Duomo then be prepared to pay up! Prices are much higher around the Duomo. Best thing around the Duomo if you’re lucky is hearing either one of the two violinists that play almost every night! They...More

Has to be seen, however be careful of 'friendly' people trying to sell african bracelets. They can become a nuisance. Be polite and refuse unless of course you do want an african bracelet in Italy!!!!

Getting into the Duomo is a great experience -but don't plan on walking up and walking in - you'll need to plan accordingly. The story of the church and it's creator is best experienced with a tour guide. I didn't put much faith in them...More

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

You can visit it any time of the day. The restaurants in the piazza are open till late and you can always walk down the nearby roads and find lots of stalls for road side shopping.
