Full description

Climb 463 steps to the highest point of the Florence Duomo cupola to admire Zuccari and Giorgio Vasari’s fresco of The Last Judgement – perhaps the most famous fresco in Florence.

From the top of Brunelleschi’s Dome, learn about this architectural accomplishment of the Renaissance period and take in the city of Florence spread out below. Inside of the Florence Cathedral is the Opera del Duomo Museum, an exhibit dedicated to preserving the Duomo’s most precious artworks. Enter with skip-the-line tickets and delve into history with the help of a professional guide. Headsets are included for larger groups. Visit the Sculpture Gallery and Salone del Paradiso (Hall of Paradise), a replica of the old Florence Cathedral and the masterpieces that once adorned the façade. See Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise and imagine these bronze doors in their original home on the Florence Baptistery. Stand in awe in front of Michelangelo’s The Deposition and learn the history behind the Cantorias (Singing Gallery) of Luca della Robbia, Donatello’s Penitent Magdalene, the Galleria del Campanile, and the Galleria della Cupola.

Our tour guide Francesca Marucci was simply excellent. She is a qualified archaeologist and was able to explain a lot of detail surrounding the Duomo in a way that really brought it to life. She looked after the tour party on the steep climb. Our tour was an amazing introduction to Florence and is highly recommended.

The visit was very good The only problem is that the visit scheduled for June 22 was canceled the day before for lack of participants and postponed to June 24 Fortunately we had nothing planned that afternoon otherwise we would not have been able to do it And not going up to the dome while being in Florence would have been too bad the view is splendid

It was very important trip for me and I was very happy that I got tickets to visit chapel. All tickets online were sold out for next week. We didn’t wait in line and went inside of cathedral very fast. Everything was well organized and comfortable. I just don’t like guide, because the way of speaking was boring and makes me sleepy
