    Visit the magnificent cathedral with your knowledgeable guide and learn some interesting facts about this attraction (entrance to the cathedral is not included). You can also enjoy panoramic views of Florence and the Tuscan Hills from dome’s balcony and admire the jaw-dropping views of Florence from the top.

    Capped by Filippo Brunelleschi's red-tiled cupola, the construction of the cathedral took almost 150 years and it wasn't consecrated until 1436. The Duomo’s dome is the highlight of the tour and considered the most important architectural achievement of the Renaissance. You will explore the world’s largest dome from inside. Hear the fascinating story behind it and admire the frescoes from Renaissance artists like Zuccari and Vasari on the two shells of the dome.

    NOTE: Your ticket is valid for 72 hours from the date chosen on the calendar.
