    After an exciting, long climb up countless flights of stairs in narrow passageways, a beautiful sun soaked, panoramic view of the city of Florence greeted me at the top of the Duomo!

    Of course!!! You can't miss it!
    Behind the duomo is the Duomo Museum with original doors of the Bapistry.
    It is the largest dome ever built.

    Bruschelli's Dome is the symbol of Florence. It was begun in 1296 with final work on it being done as late as the 19th century.

    In my opinion from outside nicer than inside. You can take a look over Florence from the roof of the church or from the tower (campanile) entry 10.000 ITL

    Visit the Duomo and the baptistry, you cannot miss it as it can be seen from all over Florence. The hill on the other side of the river is also an impressive view and good picture stop.

    An architectural masterpiece: They actually invented new technology to make the dome. The same techniques were borrowed to make St. Peter's in Rome.

    Look at Santa Maria Del Fiori.
    Santa Maria Del Fiori is a church that could be seen on virtually any postcard with a general view of Florence.
