I would highly recommend the combination ticket to enter the cathedral cupola, baptistery, belfry, cathedral crypt and museum. The cupola is simply amazing. When I read in a guide book that you could go up into the cupola, I couldn't believe it and it is well worth the stairs. Firstly, you go up in to the dome of the inside of the cathedral and get so close to the amazing paintings inside the cupola itself. You can also look down in to the cathedral, which is amazing. The next climb takes you up into the cupola in the space between the wall and the roof tiles in the curve of the cupola, which is good fun, and you end up on top of the cupola on a viewing platform. Stunning views over the city, and of the cathedral itself. On the way down, you enter the inside of the cupola again for more amazing views of the paintings in the cupola before the descent. Well worth it and incredible value for money in the combination ticket (available on-line in advance).
