"Florence's Number One" Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore Tip by sue_stone
Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence: 251 reviews and 528 photos
The Duomo is the number one must see in Florence.
The building of the Cathedral began in 1296 and took nearly 150 years to complete.
It is a pretty fabulous sight, with its stunning white, green and pink marble facade.
Its huge interior is very sparsely decorated which is quite a contract to the outside.
It is free to visit the Cathedral, with a charge to visit the underground crypt (around 3 euros)
Also as part of your visit you can climb to the top of the Dome (for around 6 euros) , for amazing views across Florence.
Address: Piazza del Duomo
