Full description
Skip the long lines to the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral and explore the inestimable artistic treasures within with a professional guide. Visit the nearby Museo della Misericordia after with an included entrance ticket.

Upon entrance to the cathedral, be struck immediately by the elegance of the 3 naves. Following the lead of your official guide, admire the beauty of the splendid marble choir of Bandinelli, the singular and mysterious clock by Paolo Uccello, and the complexity of the precious stained-glass windows worked by Donatello, Ghiberti, and Andrea del Castagno.

Walk on a marvelous carpet of polychrome marbles, then, looking up, marvel at Brunelleschi's famous Dome, the largest ever-built in masonry and the incomparable icon of Renaissance architecture. Appreciate the immense precious interior of the Dome entirely frescoed by Vasari before concluding your cathedral tour.

After, spend your free time visiting the Museo della Misericordia on Piazza del Duomo, next to the cathedral. Enjoy a magical place off the beaten track where you can admire works by Santi di Tito, Benedetto da Maiano, Sano di Pietro, Bachiacca, Sogliani, G. Battista Naldini and many other important artists.

Upgrade your tour to include lunch, by picking the Tour with Lunch option. End your wonderful experience in the best way with a 3-course Tuscan lunch with drinks, in a historic restaurant in the heart of the characteristic Medicean district, close to the Duomo square.
