Duomo di Firenze


This is Firenze, in english Florence. It is one of the most important italian cities. The name of the main square is “Piazza del Duomo” where there are the Cathedral and the Bell tower.

The Cathedral, known as “Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore”, is in the Gothic style. It was built between 1296 and 1436. Its main feature is the dome, made by Filippo Brunelleschi. The outside is covered with magnificent marble panels. Next to the Cathedral there is the Bell tower which was also built in 1296.

This square is spectacular and is a place full of art.

Since there is a very long que, we decide not to vist the inside of the Cathedral. But, in our opinion, the best part of it is of course the outside whose beauty has to be observed with great attention.

Although there are many people, the atmosphere is calm in order to relax and take your time to visit all the valuable and artistic buildings.

If you want to visit the inside of the Cathedral, we suggest you to book the entrance a few days before.


Questa è Firenze, una delle città italiane più importanti. Il nome della piazza principale è “Piazza del Duomo”, dove si trovano la Cattedrale ed il Campanile.

La Cattedrale, conosciuta come “Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore” è di stile gotico ed è stata costruita tra il 1296 ed il 1436. La sua caratteristica principale è la cupola, realizzata da Filippo Brunelleschi. L’esterno è rivestito di magnifici pannelli di marmo. Vicino a questa c’è il Campanile, anch’esso costruito nel 1296.

Questa piazza è spettacolare ed è un luogo ricco di arte.

Poichè c’è una coda lunghissima, decidiamo di non visitare l’interno della Cattedrale. Ma, a nostro avviso, la parte migliore è certamente quella esterna, la cui bellezza deve essere osservata con grande attenzione.

Nonostante ci siano molte persone, l’atmosfera è calma in modo che ci si possa rilassare e prendersi il proprio tempo per visitare queste costruzioni inestimabili ed artistiche.

Se volete visitare l’interno della Cattedrale, vi consigliamo di prenotare l’entrata qualche giorno prima.
