Iconic in every manner, Santa Maria del Fiore — commonly known as the Florence Duomo — encompasses the Italian Renaissance within one, towering structure. Best represented by its magnificent red dome, the Duomo was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi back in 1436 and dedicated to Saint Mary (Virgin of the Flowers).  

Its architecture and design are intriguing, to say the least; the first thing that greets your sight is the captivating red, green and white marble paneling firmly holding up the renowned Dome. It took an army of blacksmiths, masons, carpenters, and stone cutters to complete the construction of the Florence Duomo. 

The next time you’re looking to soak in some Renaissance-era art and culture, go ahead and buy a Florence Duomo ticket!
