A stunningly beautiful piece of architecture, you need to make sure you take time to have a really good look to appreciate the workmanship. Just as impressive at night as well

Sitting in the shade of the largest brick dome ever built, with an equally imposing baptistery and bell tower alongside it, while sipping stout/beer at the sit-out of the Irish pub located on the square's periphery and mentally travelling back through centuries of Florentine intrigue, conspiracy, affluence and uninhibited opulence seems strangely incongruous in May of 2018 ! We spent a couple of hours doing just this and generally relaxing in the fading light, watching groups of happy tourists taking photographs, while others queued up patiently to get into the Duomo. We also kept a sharp lookout for flower sellers who with a sweet smile shoved long-stemmed roses or a bouquet into the hands of unsuspecting tourists. Don't fall for this trick, just shove it right back at them else you'll be bullied into paying exorbitant sums to these crooks.

Marvellous place with nice eating places next to it. Do not miss the ice cream joints as well. Only downside is that you have to book way in advance if you want to climb up the Duomo.
