Best Hotels in Florence with Duomo Views

The city of Florence lies in the heart of Tuscany.  And the heart of Florence is undoubtedly the Duomo.  Also called “Brunelleschi’s Dome,” after its brilliant architect, Filippo Brunelleschi: the Duomo seems so magnificent as to almost be fake, at first glance.  Its scale is so huge, its facade so ornate, & it soars so high in the sky ~ it’s truly a jolt to the system.  You can’t quite believe it’s real.  It is not only one of Italy’s most famous buildings: but it’s one of Europe’s most famous buildings, symbolizing the height of Renaissance Europe.  Which is why, if you’re ever in the city, I suggest staying in one of the “Best Hotels in Florence with Duomo Views,” to soak in some of the finest Renaissance architecture in the world.
