Overview
Florence’s Duomo is one of the city’s best-known landmarks, and on this tour, you do more than just explore its interior and learn about its history—you also visit the cathedral’s lofty terraces, which have long been off-limits to the general public. Skip-the-line access means you won’t have to waste time battling crowds, and your guide will point out the many special artworks housed within its walls as you go.

Highlights
  • Skip-the-line access means more time spent exploring the Duomo
  • Explore the Duomo’s terraces, which are normally off-limits to the public
  • Visit Brunelleschi’s dome—the Duomo’s highest vantage point
  • Learn more about the history of the Florentine landmark from your licensed guide
What to Expect
This afternoon tour begins as you meet your guide at Florence’s centrally located Piazza della Repubblica. From there, it’s a speedy stroll to the Duomo. With its soaring dome designed by Brunelleschi and ornately painted walls, the cathedral is one of Florence’s most recognizable highlights. With skip-the-line access, you head straight inside. Learn from your guide about the landmark’s history, and discover the masterworks within. Next, head up the staircase and discover an area has been off-limits to most visitors for centuries: its terraces, which at more than 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground offer panoramic views overlooking the city. Take photos of the vista before climbing even higher to the top of Brunelleschi’s dome. The tour finishes inside the Duomo, though you can linger after its conclusion. Your ticket also grants you limited-time access to other Duomo complex sites, including Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistry of San Giovanni.

The view from the top of the Duomo is unforgettable, as are the 470 or so steps to get there! However, it is not for everyone - I was breathless when I reached the top - literally.

What a great tour! We met at the starting location and headed over to the Duomo. We were allowed through the exit for our tour, which meant we skipped the line. Once inside we learned facts and history about the building, paintings, etc. Then we went up to the fist level (hard
