The Duomo is a top 3 attraction for sure. It's so overwhelming that it's near impossible to describe. Recommend buy tickets online or in advance to avoid the long, long lineups. Beware street hawkers selling 'shortcut' tickets.

When touring the Duomo, it is advisable to go with a group tour to skip the entry line which can be extremely long. You will still have a line for Security but groups have a special access entry which again is much faster. And if...More

We were there at the end of the summer and it was packed. We expected it to be this way. You could still get around but beware of the big crowd

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Yes you can line up and get into the Basilica for free. If you get there nice and early and line up you can beat the long queue at the main entrance of the Duomo between it and the Baptistry.
