Of course Duomo is the number one in Florence. That’s why everybody visits this beautiful city. It is important to plan your visit and read few tips when and what parts of Duomo you would like to see. We visited Florence in the end of August during the Covid eased season and even then there were some tourists. It is suggested to book your tickets online before. The building is magnificent and not only for the art lovers. The entrance to the cathedral was free but we had to queue few minutes. The interior could look a bit empty for some people, but we though that this was clearly intended. The architects wanted to create the contrast to the complicated exterior and showed the humility of every man when standing in front of God. We also visited Brunelleschi’s dome. The entrance was from the left side of the Duomo, from the Porta della Mandorla. We had our tickets pre booked and they cost 25 euro per person. We had to claim many steps, which could be a problem for some people. In the middle of the claim you could observe Vassari’s beautifully painted dome with the Last Judgement, was impossible to see from the church. The view from the top was grandiose. You could take so many breathtaking pictures of The city. As this was 1h booked slot, we spent about 20 minutes on the top. There are other areas of Duomo to visit, but if you have time, money, and you are interested in art it would be definitely worth it.

This cathedral is certainly very impressive and special from the outside. Unfortunately, the inside is quite poor.

There is a lot to see, do and eat in the general area of the Duomo. This historic Duomo is worth a visit inside, beautiful frescoes and architecture. Great views from the dome area.

The outside is very beautiful with its green and white marble. Very expensive to visit the inside so we did not bother. Being a church it should be free.

A beautiful cathedral perfect for great vacation pics! At leaset outside of the cathedral, inside, the cathedral is empty, dark and has only few ornaments, so it's definitively not worth to queue one hour under the burning sun for that...
