The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is the main church of the Catholic Diocese of Florence. It is the third-largest cathedral in the world and a symbol of the Italian city. In 1982, the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site and part of the historical center of Florence. The outside of the church is matched with bright red, dark green, and white marble to form spectacular geometric designs that display the classical, elegant and free interpretation characteristic of the Renaissance era. It is both dramatic and beautiful from any angle.

Florence is one of my absolute favorite cities. I took this picture at dawn in the wonderful Piazza del Duomo on a December morning.
When you come to Florence, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is a must-visit. In addition to the free visits inside the church, several other attractions need to buy a package, including: towers, domes, baptistery, underground palaces and church museums, coupon prices 15, you can buy online in advance, because the time to board the dome must be booked in advance, or you have to wait a long time! I would like to add a little more here. I must remember to print out the e-tickets sent to the mailbox after the online purchase, otherwise I will not let them in.
The dome of the cathedral can be said to be one of the most exquisite masterpieces of the Renaissance. After more than 400 steps, the first thing you can admire is the incomparably gorgeous murals painted in the late 16th century. The scene of the final judgment. The top of the
dome is like the best 360° panoramic view of Florence, with a view of the city of Florence from every angle. I have to say that it is really hot to reach the top at noon. I must remember to bring enough water. The scenery in Florence is also very impressive.
The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence is a classic Renaissance building. The exterior is made of three colors of marble. It is beautiful and distinctive. It is very beautiful and solemn from any angle. The huge dome of the church is even more impressive. The interior is painted with a huge zenith painting, "The Last Judgment", and the beautiful relief on the bronze door of the Baptistry is praised by Michelangelo as "the gate of heaven."
