Florence’s Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, popularly known as the Duomo, has been a local landmark from the moment in 1436 when Filippo Brunelleschi completed its record-setting topper—the largest masonry dome in the world. The 360-degree view of Florence from the top of the dome is breathtaking and takes in the whole city.
