The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is the symbol of Florence, the tallest building in Florence, the fourth largest Catholic church in the world, and the representative building of the entire early Renaissance. The alleys are in sharp contrast with the huge church at the end of the road, and the visual effects are almost overwhelming, very shocking! Next to it is Giotto’s Bell Tower, and opposite the attached octagonal baptistery. Visiting the Basilica is free, the dome and Giotto’s Bell Tower can be climbed to the top, you can buy a combined ticket
The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo is a great, but small, art museum. Get there early to beat the crowds.
