The ancient religious heart of the city always crowded with florentines and tourists and dominated by the huge Cattedrale, at the time of construction (1296) the largest church in the world, crowned in 1436 by the majestic Brunelleschi's Dome symbol of the power of the Renaissance Florence.
Few steps from the cathedral stands the amazing bell tower designed by Giotto and one of the oldest building in Florence, the Baptistery, with its golden Gate of Paradise and its shining mosaics.
If you want to have a complete visit of the Duomo area don't forget to climb the 463 steps to reach the top of the dome and pay a visit to the little museum to see the last statue by Michelangelo: a touching Pieta made for his own tomb.
