Description

Private tour of the Duomo of Florence: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, which is also often considered the symbol of the city. Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, the cathedral is the third largest church in the world (after St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London) and it was the largest church in Europe when it was completed in the 15th century. The numerous different styles that you’ll encounter in the building bear witness to changing tastes over the long period of time that elapsed between its foundation and its completion. Discover masterpieces such as Paolo Uccello’s clock, Vasari’s frescoes and Bandinelli’s marble choir. Then, begin your ascent to Florence Heaven: the staircase climb, through
narrow and openair corridors that have been closed to the public for centuries, where will be rewarded by an incomparable view of the city from the Duomo North Terrace, on the cathedral rooftop. Experience a sky walk that will feel like floating between the city landscape, with its ancient roofs and towers, and the imposing Dome standing just a few meters above your head.
This is an exclusive visit of the North Terrace, that is normally not open to the public. Take the most incredible pictures from this 32-metre-high (105 ft) panoramic point right in the middle of the old town. Learn how the massive self standing cathedral dome was built and how it can still firmly dominate Florence skyline after 600 years, withstanding earthquakes and the passage of time. With his astonishingly innovative approach in vaulting the dome space without any scaffolding, Brunelleschi changed the rules of architecture forever, by inventing the way to defy gravity and reach eternity. Then, if you feel like continuing your climb, you can reach the top of Brunelleschi’s Cupola (the Dome). Skipping the endless long lines, you will have the opportunity to reach the 91-metre-high (300 ft) panoramic viewpoint for the highest level of this Florentine Heaven and breathtaking views.
