Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore

Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, located in the Piazza del Duomo, is a sight to behold. Though not graced with quite the same degree of artwork inside as the Basilica di San Pietro, it still has some phenomenal paintings on the dome.

Walking up the 463 steps to the top of the dome itself offers the perfect way to see Florence and how it is laid out. The €8 cost is well worth the view and it never hurts to get some exercise.
