Description

NEW! During our Florence Duomo tour you will have the incredible opportunity to discover Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral and to see the city from an exclusive and breathtaking point of view: the Duomo terraces (that are normally not reachable) and Brunelleschi's magnificent Dome.

An exceptional one-of-a-kind experience: a guided viewing of the core of Florence's spiritual soul, the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral), with Brunelleschi's Dome and an exclusive sky-walk on the amazing terraces for an awe-inspiring view!
Meet your dedicated, professional guide, enter the Cathedral easily with priority skip-the-line Duomo Florence tickets, and begin an unforgettable journey into art, spirituality, history and magic.

Built over a period of a century and a half, with input by important artists such as Arnolfo di Cambio, Giotto, Andrea Pisano and Brunelleschi, creator of the cupola, this cathedral, Florence's Duomo, is the city's most iconic landmark.
The guide will help you recognize and appreciate the variety of styles visible in the grand echoing interior, so many due to the fact that construction took almost 150 years. He will point out the brilliance of the 44 stained-glass windows, the splendid frescoes by Vasari and Zuccari, the impressive marble choir by Bandinelli and much more.

After viewing the various artworks in the Cathedral you will start your ascent, up a narrow staircase used for centuries, and along open corridors. The climb will be more than worth it: the terraces, 32 meters (105 ft) high, are generally closed to the public, but they will be open for your group.

Reach the top and feel the unique privilege of being "in the sky". Lose yourself in the astonishing panorama of red-tiled rooftops, elegant towers, busy streets and piazzas below, and the cypress-clad hillside in the distance. As you gaze at the city's most spectacular view your guide will tell you about Brunelleschi's astonishing genius and creative talent. How he used vaults that allowed the building of the Cathedral cupola without scaffolding, and how it still stands today, a dominating presence admired worldwide, apparently defiant of age and wear, earthquakes and wars.

If after the terrace sky-walk, you are still willing to climb, you may use your fast-track Florence duomo tickets to go up to the very top of Brunelleschi's dome: 91 meters (300 ft.) high it offers yet more unforgettable views onto the "cradle of the Renaissance".
The cost of the Duomo Florence tour also includes access to the Baptistery, the Opera del Duomo Museum and the Bell Tower: your ticket is valid for any or all of these monuments within 72 hours from your entrance to the Duomo.

IMPORTANT: please note that there is a dress code for entrance to places of worship and some museums: no shorts or sleeveless tops are allowed, knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women. Persons not complying with the dress code requirements will be refused entrance.

Awesome experience

The Duomo is exceptional- but having the exclusive entrance to actually climb the stairs and see the art up close (not to mention the panorama of the city from the top!) was truly amazing. Valentina Guadagni, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and made the tour that much better! Highly recommend!

Wonderful View.

My mother and I booked this last minute and we did not regret it. Our guide, Laura, did such an awesome job showing us around Il Duomo. I learned a lot of things on this trip and her in-depth analysis was fantastic.

Great tour of Duomo!

Francesca led us on a very informative tour of the Florence Duomo, including skywalk. She was so knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was evident. A lot of stairs to climb, but definitely worth it. Not having to wait in line was another big plus!
