"Florence - the Duomo" Tuscany Things to Do Tip by Umea6

Tuscany Things to Do: 208 reviews and 393 photos


The size of this cathedral is enormous. The details on the building are so amazing, it takes your breath away. It truly is one of the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen. It is forth largest in the world, after the one in Rome, milan and London.
The renaissance architecture style is easily recognisable and is the symbol of Florence.
The facade is very colorful with a design in white, red and green marble. The inside has high gothic arches, windows and doors. The walls are adorned with frescoes.
Visitors can climb to the top of the dome and enjoy scenic views of the city.
