Beautiful but get there early if you want to go up the Duomo, then move on to the tower. A lot of places to grab a bite, gelato or go shopping.

No photos do this marvellous building justice. Didn’t go in as the queues were too long, even in March but the outside itself is jaw dropping. Such an iconic building. Opposite is the baptistery which is worth a look at its golden plaque doors depicting biblical scenes.

Long queues for the cathedral as it is free to enter - more impressive from the outside . For the Babtistry, bell tower and dome buy your tickets from building number 7 opposite the Babtristry entrance - 18 euros. Great views from the bell tower but a 414 step climb.

A beautiful place if you can figure out how to actually see the whole thing. I bought tickets on line ahead of time. Have every last piece of email they send you when you arrive because you'll need to show every last one of them. Although all of them say "ticket" they're not all tickets and it gets confusing when you're looking through all of them to find one for each person in your group. Best to print ahead of time. Know where to enter. Which is of value no matter where you go in Italy. There are multiple entrances depending on what you're looking at. If you"re claustrophobic- don't climb the 22 floors to the top. It is an amazing view once there and definitely worth it- but- stairs are narrow, the climb is high, and it gets pretty stuffy. It's amazing that it was built when it was. Absolutely beautiful.

Long queues to get inside, but free to get in. Disappointed with the interior of the cathedral, and to get into the museum which is downstairs inside it was 18 euros. Don't bother booking a guided tour , waste of money as its free to get in. The bell tower has about 462 steps to the top, no lift so it's only for the fittest of us really.
