Florence – Il Duomo

Click the thumbnail for photo gallery

The Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi’s Dome, Giotto’s Campanile and the Baptistery dominate the sights to see in Florence. This historic center of Florence has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The buildings rise above the hoards of tourists, and are being constantly cleaned behind banks of scaffolding. Pink, white and green marble form the decorative, carved facades and sides. As you can see, Dorothy photographed this Renaissance treasure from all angles.

The Cathedral’s museum contained Michangelo’s sculpture “La Pieta'”.
