PIAZZA DEL DUOMO
Relais del Duomo is located at a few meters from the Duomo di Firenze, one of the world's great artistic values.
Santa Maria Del Fiore
The Duomo di Firenze is also called Santa Maria del Fiore because the city symbol is a flower: the giglio.
The construction of this building, which is one of the biggest cathedrals in Italy, was started in year 1296, as a substitute of the ancient cathedral of Santa Reparata. The original project was made by Arnolfo di Cambio, sculpturer and architect.
After his death, the church's works slowed down, and they were reprised later with renewed vigor in 1334, with Giotto becoming capomastro.
Giotto's contribute was particularly concentrated on the bell tower, which is found by the main face of the Duomo.
From the Duomo's terrace a beautiful vista can be enjoyed. A suggestion we feel to give is that of going on the bell tower and reaching the terrace on the top. You will remain breathless!
