What to expect
Your experience begins at a central Florence location, where you greet your guide and sail past the long lines that often form outside of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiori. Head straight inside, as your guide informs you about the dome’s history. Begin your 463-step ascent to the top of the dome, admiring frescoes from Renaissance artists as you go. At the top, you are rewarded with panoramic city views that stretch as far as the Tuscan hills. You then have the choice to remain and continue exploring the cathedral independently.

Duamo and dome climb
Helena our guide did a fantastic job of explaining all about the various buildings and really brought the tour to life. Her knowledge was outstanding. I would definitely recommend adding the dome climb.

Memorable Tour
Sep 2020
Truly a memorable experience. A knowledgeable guide - Francesca ( sorry if I got this wrong) took us on a renaissance history lesson through the excellent museum, the baptistery and up the dome stairs. We had a delightful and informative commentary in lovely accented English. Not to be missed. Worth every cent.

Fat Tire Tours are the BEST!
Jul 2019
We did this tour and the Florence City Bike tour with Andrea as our guide. He was EXCELLENT - very engaging and a great story teller. We had been to Florence before, but it was wonderful to tour the city with a local.

The group sizes were reasonable - enough that you nobody was falling behind and all questions anyone had were answered by Andrea.

I highly recommend both tours and the skip the line feature made a big difference when visiting Florence in the summer!

We have now done 3 tours with Fat Tire Tours and we look forward to touring with them again in the future.

Fabulous guide
Mar 2020 • Couples
When I first booked this I thought it was quite expensive but you absolutely get what you pay for. Bernadetta, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and made the experience so much more interesting than if we’d just climbed the dome on our own. 100% recommend this tour.

Great view!
Feb 2020
This tour was amazing! Not only is the Duomo a fantastic experience, the climb to the top of the Dome provided a fabulous view of the entire city. The climb is quite a hike but the pace is slow so is manageable. We also stopped at about half way so that gave us a breather. Being at the top is worth the climb! The tour guide was fun, interesting and knowledgeable.

Wow!!!
From start to finish this was a fantastic experience. There were just 5 of us, which made it even better in my opinion. Our guide Andres was simply wonderful. His knowledge, friendliness, sense of humor, and overall fantastic personality added so much value to the afternoon. We explored the museum before entering the cathedral, once inside we bypassed everyone and received wonderful special attention from staff. The climb itself and everything we learned along the way was brilliant, and enriching. The skywalk was breathtaking, but the view from the very top is awe inspiring. I can not recommend this tour highly enough!! This was one of the highlights of my visit to Firenze!!!

Skip-the-Line Florence Duomo with Brunelleschi's Dome Climb
Jan 2020 • Solo
Was looking forward to this experience during my time in Florence. Has been lovely looking up at the grand Cathedral, but quite something else to stand at its highest point and look out upon it and the city. Highly recommend for anyone who loves the iconic Duomo, and doesnt suffer from fear of heights or close spaces.

Thank you Jess It's impossible to exaggerate how impressive the view from the top of the Duomo is - especially getting up there with one of our fantastic guides
