Like most of the stunning architecture in Florence this building is squashed between other old and new buildings but the place is of a wonderful intricate design and worth visiting.

Unique marble-clad church buildings, but avoid peak season if you can or take your chances with huge tour groups, horse0drawn carriages and most of all, cyclists.

Another busy Piazza with a lot of restaurants and gelateria, grab an outdoor seat and take in the beauty of the Duomo.

The cathedral in the Piazza del Duomo is like a masterpiece. It is one of the biggest cathedral of the world and it is like a marble. You will be lost during turning around the huge cathedral

This is a remarkable area with 3 major attractions you can hit one after the other. If you want to take it easy maybe start with the Baptistry then the Duomo Santa Maria Del Fiore and if you are inclined then climb up to the Cupola where the view is breathtaking.

It's hard to believe a place like this even exists?? You shouldn't miss it if you are in Florence. Take a day tour to Siena and see this amazing place!

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
