    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. 😄🇮🇹⛪️

    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

    You should buy tickets before taking place in the line because they don't sell it at entrance. Sightseeing from top of the sphere worth to climb all that vertical stairs.

    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.

    It was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to the design of Arnolfo di Cambio and completed in 1436 by Filippo Brunelleschi. The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels.

    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 ;-)

    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.

    Very impressive and beautiful, don't be discouraged by the queue to access the Coppola/dome and the entrance fee (8€), the view is breathtaking at the top!!

    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.

    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.

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

    Compared to other basilicas in Italy, nothing special, it's not really glamorous inside. Still impressive architecture, though.

    Too bad you can only view it from the entrance and that's about it. The outside is definitely prettier.

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

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