What to expect

Tour with exclusive visit and 72h ticket to the Duomo complex: Cathedral, Crypt, Baptistery, Bell tower, Dome and Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.

Take a step back into time and explore Florence's cathedral complex. You'll start your guided tour with a video describing the creation and evolution of this important church. Special images and reconstructions will come to life as you are guided by an authorized expert through the workshop where Michelangelo himself worked on the famous David. The facility is still in use today, with the same tools and techniques perfected by many artists long ago.

You will also take part in a guided tour of the Baptistery and the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, giving you the chance to marvel at the beautiful art and restorations of these structural masterpieces.

When your tour is over, you are invited to sample some pleasant Chianti wine with a delectable bite of cheese and balsamic vinegar. The visit doesn't stop there. Your ticket will also grant you access to other structures in the cathedral complex. On your own you can visit Brunelleschi's dome, the crypt of St. Reparata, and Giotto's bell tower. The Renaissance is yours to explore!
