The most striking building in Florence is the Duomo which can be seen from miles away. The actual dome is a one of a kind engineering masterpiece designed and construction by Brunelleschi (Who is buried on the Duomo) in the early 1400's. The exterior of the Duomo and its color patterns are a striking contrast to the surrounding buildings. The Church itself is the 4th largest in Europe.

There are many pictures on VT of the exterior, Dome, Bell tower (campanile) and baptristy. Here is a photo we took of the interior of the Dome with Frescoes of the Last Judgement by Vasari and Zuccari.
