Full description

Save precious time with a fast-track entry ticket to the Florence Duomo. Explore the sights of the cathedral complex and learn about its history while accompanied by an expert guide.

From the outside of the Florence Cathedral admire its green, pink, and white marble panels. Check out the various statues, lozenges, and reliefs that represent the different stories and histories of mankind.

Be in awe of Giotto’s Bell Tower, a freestanding campanile towering over Piazza del Duomo, before entering the Duomo. Climb up the dome for panoramic views and ask your guide as many questions as you like.

Once you reach the top, see Florence's historic center from above, its important landmarks, and the surrounding area.

GREAT idea! It seemed like trying to find a time to climb the dome would be difficult if we didn't book a tour and I am so glad we did! There was so much history & the pace of the tour was excellent!!
