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.


Delve into the magnificent Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral!


It takes approximately two and a half hours to complete the task at hand.


You will have the chance to explore the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral and witness a stunning, exclusive view of the city from the Duomo terraces during our Florence Duomo excursion. Brunelleschi's impressive Dome is also accessible during this adventure, adding to the experience. An awe-inspiring and one-of-a-kind opportunity awaits you: a tour guide will take you to the heart of Florence's spiritual center - the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral). The tour includes a sky-walk on the magnificent terraces with Brunelleschi's Dome as the backdrop as well as an exclusive guided viewing of the interior. This guided experience promises to be unforgettable! With priority skip-the-line Duomo Florence tickets, enter the Cathedral and start your unforgettable journey. Meet your professional, dedicated guide that will lead you through art, magic, spirituality, and history. Florence's Duomo, which is the city's most iconic landmark, was created over a century and a half with the help of notable artists such as Brunelleschi, Andrea Pisano, Giotto, and Arnolfo di Cambio, who offered valuable input. Construction spanned nearly 150 years, resulting in a grand echoing interior boasting an array of styles. The guide will highlight the exceptional 44 stained-glass windows, as well as the excellent frescoes by Vasari and the Zuccari. Additionally, he will bring attention to the magnificent marble choir by Bandinelli, and numerous other impressive features. The guide's efforts will enable you to fully appreciate the sheer variety of styles on display. You'll start off by admiring the Cathedral's various art pieces before embarking on your ascent. You'll make your way up an old staircase that's been used for centuries, through open corridors and up 32 meters (105ft) high. The climb may be a bit of a challenge but it will definitely be worth it, especially since the terraces are usually off-limits to the public but will be open to your group.
