Full description
Skip the long lines and enter the Cathedral. Admire the white and green marble of the Dome of Brunelleschi– an architectural marvel. Cross the threshold and you will be greeted by the 3 naves of the church, as well as it’s stunning interior. Marvel at the light pouring through the stained glass windows, colorfully illuminating the evocative rosette of the façade.

Take a journey back in time as your local guide details the history of the Duomo. Learn about its progression from small 7th-century church to the 3rd largest cathedral in the world. Hear how Brunelleschi developed innovative techniques in order to build the Duomo. Be amazed at Zuccari and Vasari's massive fresco depicting the Last Judgement.

Once your guided tour is over, you can stay inside the Cathedral as long as like. Enjoy this must-see monument at your own pace.
