Full description
Piazza del Duomo is located in the heart of the historic center of Florence. It is one of the most visited places in the world, and is the most visited area of the city. From your meeting point, your guide will provide you with an insight into the history of this marvelous piece of art standing right in front of you. You will also be introduced to your professional photographer, you will be available to you until your tour concludes.

Your guide will begin with a talking tour on your way to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, which commits to the conservation of the dome and other artworks of great masterpieces of Michelangelo, Donatello, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Luca Della Robbia, Arnolfo di Cambio, and many others. Afterwards, as you walk through the Piazza, you'll catch glimpses of the red dome that was completed in 1436 by Filippo Brunelleschi, and was once known as the largest building in Medieval Europe. Following an interesting explanation of this showstopper, your next stop will be the showpieces of the Florentine Gothic architecture, Giotto's Bell Tower standing adjacent to the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore.

Your guide will then walk you around the exterior of the Loggia del Bigallo, a late Gothic building in Florence with a unique historical fact behind it. Finally, you’ll enter through the “Gates of Paradise” to the Baptistery of Saint John, which stands across from the Duomo Cathedral. You will be talked through the technical and artistic points of view of the architecture, before your tour later concludes.
