Visit the Duomo of Florence and discover its enchanting secrets

The style and elegance of the Hotel Golden Tower will convince you to choose among others this hotel near the Duomo in Florence. It will allow you to reach on foot one of the most fascinating monuments of the old town.

Only a few minutes separate the guests of the Golden Tower Hotel, which stands out among the hotels in the historical centre of Florence, from the Duomo also known as the Church of Santa Maria del Fiore, the main religious and artistic symbol of the city, which includes cultural evidence from different eras.

This monumental masterpiece, was projected by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1296, but many changes and contributions would lead to a continuous development of the original structure and enrichment in beauty and value, starting with the magnificent
cupola designed by Brunelleschi.

Result of a long studying and unattainable talent, the Cupola of Duomo of Florence, is characterized as self-supporting and octagonal, but especially for painting that covers an extraordinarily beautiful fresco cycle designed by Vasari and then by Zuccari, the largest known so far.

Various kinds of marble, sculptures and paintings give the church a mystical and terrific look, which stuns the soul of the visitor while visiting the great naves that meet in "trefoil-shaped tribunes," and eventually comes under the cupola after admiring the works of masters such as Giotto, Pisano and Uccello.

Outside, the imposing marble façade seems to clearly introduce the magnificence of the interior.  Also excites curiosity the mechanical clock still running.

To complete an exciting artistic journey, a few steps from the Duomo are worth a visit the Baptistery and Giotto’s bell-tower.
