Florence Cathedral

Piazza del Duomo contains within it the symbols of the Florentine Renaissance with the wonderful Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore known as the Duomo of Florence, with the memorable Brunelleschi's Dome, a jewel of architecture of the fifteenth century that still keeps its secrets on its  construction ways. 


The baptistery dedicated to Saint John the Baptist contrasts with the polychrome marble façade of the Cathedral. It is dedicated to the patronof the city and has three decorated bronze doors realized by Andrea Pisano and Lorenzo Ghiberti


The Giotto's bell tower completes one of the most photographed scenes of the historic center of Florence.


The area of the Cathedral is the focal point of the religious life of the city but is now surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants, libraries and services. 


A great area to stay in Florence, it is easily accessible from the railway station in the pedestrian area of the historical center.
