Amazing to see in it's full glory. The Duomo looms impressively over the piazza, and takes up a huge footprint in the middle of the city. An absolute must see.

Climbing the dome is 100% worth it. Though it is a long climb and pretty steep the views are amazing. Since I have asthma, I had to take a few breaks on the way up but it was doable. Do not make the same mistake...More

It quite a climb​ and for sure little children but for sure worth while doing. The view is fantastic and along the the way up you'll see magnificent Fresco's.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Hi Jan, You are best off booking on-line for the Dome climb ! You can queue but you may turn up when several bus loads have disgorged their hordes !! Plus with a booking you can't miss !
