Owner description: This large city square contains the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, the third largest cathedral in the world after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London.
Reviewed 2 April 2018

To get inside the Cathedral is free and you don't need a ticket, however, you may be at least 30 minutes in line waiting, like we did, by arriving 30 minutes prior the doors open.
The Cathedral is breathtaking from outside but I prefer much more the inside of San Lorenzos basilic.

We scheduled a time slot to watch the sun set - highly recommend. it was the week before Easter, so unfortunately the lines getting into the church were too long - hours and hours. Plan accordingly.

We stayed nearby over the Easter break, walking from the train station and seeing the duomo is breathtakingly beautiful. The whole piazza is amazing, I was in awe, we visited different bars and ice cream shops here also and it was lovely. The queues for the duomo per Easter were crazy and the amount of people in this piazza was huge particularly on Easter Sunday when the burning of the cart ceremony was taking place.

Walking up to the Piazza on the small city streets you are amazed my the size of the church and all of its decorations. I have been here several time and have been amazed by it every time. Sometimes it can be very crowded but it provides very good people watching. Good shopping---comparison shop with some of the shops away from the busy areas to make sure you are getting a good price.

Love the architecture. It is a great place to take a break and sit to have lunch or dinner. Always an active area for tourists.
