"Duomo" Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore Tip by rcsparty

Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence: 250 reviews and 523 photos


The Duomo is at the center of a busy area and impressive to see. The facade of pink and green marble is either very beautiful or very ugly depending on your perspective. The dome was designed by Brunelleshi in the 1400's. The outside is more impressive then the inside, which was damaged by the flood of 1966. While crowded in the morning, it seems to clear out in the afternoon.
