Fifty meters from Le Stanze del Duomo B&B is the splendid cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, commonly known as the Cathedral of Florence. The cathedral complex also includes Brunelleschi's enormous Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery of San Giovanni.
Designed in the late 13th century by Arnolfo di Cambio, it stands on the former cathedral of Santa Reparata, the remains of which are visible from the nave.
The third largest church in the world (after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London), at its consecration in 1436 it was the largest in Europe.
An unmissable visit to feel the beating heart of the city and to learn about its cultural, architectural and artistic heritage.
It is possible to reach the top of Giotto's Bell Tower, 85 meters high, by climbing more than 414 steps, and on Brunelleschi's dome, which reaches 116 meters in height, by tackling 463 steps. The effort will be repaid by a splendid view of Florence that can leave you breathless.
