Lonely Planet review

Begun in 1334 by Giotto, Florence Cathedral’s soaring bell tower rises nearly as high as the cathedral’s dome. Its elaborate Gothic facade, including 16 life-size statues, represents a Who’s Who of 14th-century art, including Giotto Andrea Pisano, Donatello and Luca Della Robbia (the originals are in Museo dell’Opera del Duomo). Climb its 414 steps for nearly the same superb city view as Brunelleschi’s dome without the snaking lines.
