    The outside is stunning; however, like during high season, it is packed with tour groups and is hard to enjoy. Come early in the morning, pay a premium for a coffee, sit beside it and enjoy the view.

    A big WOW! Worth a wait in the line and spring for the extra tour of the rotunda. Just make sure to dress properly so they don't have to cover you up. 😄🇮🇹⛪️

    Amazing facade. Go both in the day and at night. Inside is a little plain compared to outside but is free to get it and worth it.

    The clock on the counter façade of the cathedral often gets overlooked. It dates to 1443, was frescoed by Paolo Uccello and still tells the time correctly today, give or take a few minutes. It uses a

    Get the museum ticket that lets you climb the dome and the belltower. It's worth it! You can buy the ticket in the belltower. There was no line when I went.

    Each guard at the door uses their own set of criteria on the type of outfits (i.e. shorts, skirts, etc) allowed. If you get turned away by one guard, you'll be let in by the next. Be persistent!!

    You can climb the dome or the bell tower for beautiful views. The dome climb has some tight spaces- a warning to those who don't do well with them.

    Entrance at the right side of the basilica by a ramp connected to the street level. The threshold has a slightly rise at the entrance but the staff is always willing to help disabled people. Read more

    Not so impressive inside after outside look. But you can buy the tickets that are valid 24 hours after first entrance that permit you to enter to the Cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore an other 4 places.

    The first stone of the Duomo’s facade was laid on September 8, 1296 but the decoration you see here dates to 1871-87! For something older, turn around: the Baptistry is 11th century ;-)

    Brunelleschi's mysterious masterpiece finished in 1436 still fascinates us as it crowns the amazing cathedral that was built over 150 years before!

    Going up the dome is a must-do. The baptistry opposite to the Basilica is also awesome.

    Remember to adhere to the modest dress code—especially women. No shorts, short skirts, tank-tops, spaghetti straps. If you forget, vendors all around sell scarves to cover up.

    Never really a line for the bell tower climb. Almost as high as the dome but views slightly disturbed by fencing, still very impressive.

    Not much to see here. Instead, visit the cupola and climb the clock tower for an incredible view of the dome. The line downstairs leads to a bookstore and the crypt

    Skip line with firenze card for the dome. Expect over 400 stairs to the tower. Bring water and maybe a backup shirt.
