    The Florence Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, is not exactly what you probably think it should be. Outside the story and the glory of the city and bare inside. Marbles from Carrara (white), Prato (green) and from Maremma (red). These are the italian flag colors. The Brunelleschi dome "la cupola di Brunelleschi" and the Giotto bell tower are pieces of the same opera but, as the San Giovanni baptistery, seem to be dione in another world.

    Really interesting and informative tour and just an hour too, which was good, as it didn’t take up too much time when we only had a few days to spend in beautiful Florence. The guide was also lovely and friendly (Rosa).

    Standing for half an hour in front of the cathedral is not a guided tour.
