This is basically the centre of Florence. It is abeautiful area containing the beautiful main Florence cathedral, the bell tower and the baptistry. It is always crowded with tourists. It is a must see when visiting Florence.

This was not among our expected stops when staying at Florence, but we were taken in by the enormity and beauty. We were not interested in a tour, but opted instead to take in the sight of the building from the outside and sample gelato. A must-see in the area, for sure.

Great cafes are all around the Piazza and you cannot help but love the Duomo. Great atmosphere, with some amazing buskers playing too.

The outside of this structure will blow your mind, the inside was also amazing but was very poorly lite. I assume that is because they have to preserve the historical pieces.

I cannot find any negative points. What I consider ugly is the necessary presence of soldiers patrolling the area. I do however appreciate their service. An artistic area.

Quite the building. It is amazing from both the outside and inside. Even if you don't go in, be sure to explore all aspects of the exterior.

I have already described my experience of the Duomo or the Cathedral of Mary of the flowers.But this church is so beautiful,it's worth repeating. You will not regret spending hours or days marvelling at the appearance of these buildings...the Duomo,the Bell Tower and the Baptistery many times over.I visited first thing in the morning,and at twilight and at night.The colour...

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
