What to Expect

Witness the Glory of the Florence Duomo

Visit the Florence Duomo and enjoy reserved access to the iconic Cupola on this 1-hour guided tour. Once you’ve met your guide, you will be led past the ticket line and the group will head straight for the Duomo Cupola. The climb to the Cupola and the unparalleled views of the city from the top are the highlights of this experience.

Built by Filippo Brunelleschi, this red dome was the largest in the world in its time and soon became a symbol of Florence. Throughout your tour of the Duomo Cupola, you will be accompanied by a licensed English-speaking guide who will share fascinating insights about the Cupola, the Duomo and its jaw-dropping architecture. From your unique vantage point at the Cupola, you will be able to see the entire city of Florence. This trip to the top of the Duomo includes a 463-step climb to the top. On your way up, you will also get to marvel at the stunning Duomo interiors, including a chance to see Vasari’s Last Judgment up close.
While inside the Cupola, your guide will also give you first-hand information about the Cathedral which you can easily spot from inside the Cupola or from the access entrance itself.
After your guided tour of the Cupola, you are given free access to explore the Duomo at your own pace. The Duomo sits on the site of the 7th-century Church of Santa Reparata. This vast Gothic structure showcases the best of 13th and 15th-century architecture and took over 150 years to complete. A statue of each of the architects, Arnolfo di Cambio and Filippo Brunelleschi, can be found right outside the cathedral in admiration of their work
