Brunelleschi’s Dome overlooking Florence and still there around the city no tallest building. The bell tower was designed by Giotto but did not see it finished. The Baptistry is one of the oldest buildings in Florence and is there in the fourth century; with its magnificent gates is a true Bible in images. The Cathedral with its white marble facade and green catch the look. There is nowhere else in the world a complex of buildings so extraordinary. We are in the heart of Florence, opposite Santa Maria del Fiore, which everyone calls the Duomo. A cathedral of 153 meters long, built nearly 170 years to do envy to the churches of rivals Pisa and Siena. The construction of this complex was attended by the most important artists of Florence: Giotto, Brunelleschi, Vasari, Talenti, Arnolfo di Cambio, Lorenzo Ghiberti. Every visit to Florence starts here: with their heads up and look in amazement, wondering how they made men create such a wonder.
