To experience the city's atmosphere of culture, art, and history, drop by Piazza del Duomo, a lively square in the historic town center. One of Europe's most visited sites, this area is world-famous for offering stellar views from the main cathedral's dome, a creation of the Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi. A huge statue of the architect sits in the square, his figure looking up toward his greatest achievement. The plaza also includes a Gothic bell tower designed by the city's other celebrated architect, Giotto di Bondone. Visit the octagonal baptistery built in honor of St. John, one of the oldest structures in the city. While strolling around this public space, drop by the square's popular museum of fine art, which features masterpieces by Michelangelo and Donatello, among others.
