Climbing the Duomo in the Center of Florence


The Piazza del Duomo in the center of Florence is home to three buildings, all on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Baptistery and Giotto's Campanile, along with the most well known of the three, the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower, are must-sees when visiting Italy's Tuscan region. The cathedral, more commonly referred to as the Florence cathedral or Duomo is among the largest churches in the country.

Social Media Description

Are you the type of traveler who likes to climb towers, lighthouses and the like for great views?

We do! It's a way to get some exercise, meet our step goals and usually soak in a panoramic view of the local area.

During our 2017 visit to the Tuscan region in Italy, we spent several days wandering around Florence. After exploring the surrounding buildings in the Piazza del Duomo, we joined the line to climb up to the top. Climbing the dome in the cathedral was actually not too difficult. There were some very narrow spots and also some dark areas. When we neared the top, since the side of the dome leans in, we couldn't really stand straight up on the small steps. But, it was an interesting experience, and we were glad that we did the climb. The view was worth it - in addition to the outdoor view, we had a view of the amazing artwork and could see down into the cathedral floor.

What was your most memorable climb?
