An enlightening experience

The Brunelleschi's dome has always been the symbol of Florence. With this tour you will have the opportunity to discover all its secrets, accompanied by an expert guide, and rise above the tallest building in the city to admire the stunning view from the top.

With a special ticket that will allow you to jump the queue, thereby saving long waiting time, you will enter the Duomo of Florence: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the third largest cathedral in the world, after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London.

Florence Cathedral was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio. Its construction was begun in 1296 and completed only in 1436. The works were interrupted and resumed several times over the decades by masters like Giotto, Francesco Talenti and Giovanni di Lapo Ghini. The completion of the dome required great intelligence and skill, not only for its design but for the construction itself, since at that time, they didn't have machines that could get to work at such heights. Brunelleschi found a truly innovative solution to this problem and succeeded, with his idea of a double shell, to complete the construction of the dome.

After visiting the interior of the Cathedral and the Santa Reparata Crypt, the tour will take you at about 30 meters above the ground, going up a staircase and passing through narrow outdoor corridors, which for centuries have been closed to the public. From that special place you will enjoy breathtaking views of the city. Walking through the Duomo terraces you will have the feeling of being suspended between the roofs of houses and the huge dome of the cathedral. You will have unique possibility to take memorable photos and enjoy all the magic of the city. During the walk the guide will explain you all about the dome, its design and construction and how, even today, it is the city's symbol, visible from every corner of it.

After the walk on the terraces, you will be able to continue the climbing reaching the top of the dome, a panoramic viewpoint  91 meters high, easily skipping the long and unavoidable queues.


The Florence Santa Maria del Fiore, one of the renowned cathedrals in the world, can be visited and its walls examined.


The journey usually takes about 2.5 hours.


An extraordinary chance to find Florence Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore church) and watch the city from a great and one-of-a-kind perspective, which is not accessible to all, specifically the Duomo terraces and Brunelleschi's stunning Dome. When you enter with your pre-booked, skip-the-line ticket, our highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide will lead you directly to Florence Duomo: Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. It was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, the cathedral is the third biggest church in the world (the first one is St. Peter's in Rome and the second one is St. Paul's in London), and it stood as Europe’s largest church during its conclusion around the 15th century. The numerous different styles that you’ll encounter in the building bear witness to changing tastes over the long period of time that elapsed between its foundation and its completion. Discover masterpieces such as Paolo Uccello’s clock, Vasari’s frescoes, and Bandinelli’s marble choir. Bear in mind that on the 6 PM tour you will go straight to the Duomo terrace without exploring the Cathedral more deeply. From there, start your ascent to Florence Heaven: climbing the stairs and walking along narrow and open-air passageways that have been closed off to the public for centuries will reward you with an unparalleled view of the city from the Duomo Terraces. You'll feel like you're floating above the ancient rooftops and towers as well as the majestic Dome looming just a few meters above your head. In what can be termed as a rare opportunity, this is an exclusive tour of the Terraces that are usually not available to ordinary tourists. Capture stunning images from this panorama point which is located at a height of 32 meters in the heart of the old town. The reason behind the making of a cathedral that is to this day the largest self-supporting dome in the world and how it continues to dominate Florence's skyline after six centuries despite earthquakes, war, and the elements. By completing a daring feat that had never been attempted before, Brunelleschi revolutionized architectural principles and ushered in a new era of innovation by figuring out how to build such a tall dome without any internal support system or scaffolding. After ascending Brunelleschi’s Cupola (the Dome), you will be able to get to the 91-meters-high, 300-ft-long panoramic viewpoint for the topmost stage of this Florentine heaven and breathe in the mind-blowing vistas around. A full visit of Florence's Cathedral complex ever.
