We had not been able to book tickets and l8me many others felt sad at leaving Florence having missed this. We saw people queuing and discovered it was for a mass on Saturday at 5pm. It was just so moving and such a privilege to...More
Truly an iconic building in the centre of Florence - a huge green and white confection. Unable to climb the 400+ stairs we queued for about an hour to get in. Staff on duty were surly to the point of rudeness to women who dared...More
When you first see this magnificent structure you feel a sense of urgency to get to it sooner. At first glance it looks like something out of the movie Inception. I took load of pictures but video was better! There are no words except if...More
Despite the 463 steps this is an unforgettable experience. You must make a reservation for a timed entry in order to do this and it is definitely worth it. It is a good idea to first go to the Museo Dell' Opera Del Duomo, just...More
I chose to climb the 463 steps to the top of the Dome and it was the best decision ever!!! This guided tour made you appreciate Brunelleschi’s domed masterpiece even more. Our guide, Martina, was great! She was informative, extremely knowledgeable and had a great...More
The duomo is an architectural beauty. This is a must see in Florence. The size of the dome is huge and amazing. We booked the tickets to climb up the dome in hot summer with temperature exceeding 36C . We were waiting in the queue...More
This place has to be experienced to appreciate it. Pictures don't do it justice. It's amazingly beautiful and wonderful to behold something this vast was created in the 1600s. Once you're inside, there aren't a lot of exhibits, so I wouldn't water money on a...More
Wow. The outside of this church is breathtaking. I was stunned the first time we glanced at it.
The inside was disappointing. Wish we could have just gone into the baptismo instead of this one. But their gift shop inside has some unique magnets for...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
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.

With advance reservations and our Rick Steves audio guide We did four museums in 8 hours. We did a1.5 hour abbreviated version of the Ufizzi while still being able to appreciate what we saw. Then we went to the Bargello. Break for lunch and then we clmbed tne Duomo and the to the Academy to see the David. By the fourth we were over tired. We got lost several times, even with a map, so schedule time between stops to be lost. We found the BEST lunch place while lost. I wish we wrote it down.
