Opera Duomo Museum
The Museo dell'Opera's 6,000 sq. mt. surface area consists of twenty-five rooms on three floors comprising a partial renewal of the museum, several totally new exhibition halls and innovative areas to link the two. For the very first time, a spectacular new design hosts the museum's unique masterpieces in a setting reflecting the environment for which they were originally designed, creating a museum within a museum in a concentration of faith, art and history unparalleled anywhere in the world encapsulating the very roots of Western culture
Giotto's Bell Tower
Giotto's bell tower is one of the four principal monuments on the Piazza del Duomo.

84.7 metres tall and approximately 15 metres in breadth, it is the most eloquent example of 14th century Gothic architecture in Florence, combining a strong vertical thrust with the principle of sound solidity, its corner buttresses rising the full length of the tower to the projecting terrace at the top.

Clad in white, red and green marble like the cathedral adjacent to it, the majestic square bell tower, considered to be the most beautiful campanile in Italy and probably designed more for decorative than for functional purposes, was begun by Giotto in 1334.
