What to expect

Dive deep into the history of great art and architecture in Florence with this all-access tour to the city’s most jaw-dropping attractions. This exclusive tour of David and the Duomo lets you skip the lines at two of Florence’s biggest attractions. Visit Michelangelo’s David before the crowds show up and climb the Florence Dome without waiting in line. Finally, don't miss to explore areas of the Duomo usually closed to the public and dig deeper at the Duomo Museum and Baptistery.

You’ll start your tour in the morning right outside the Accademia. Before the daytime crowds show up, you’ll head in to marvel at Michelangelo’s David as well as his unfinished sculptures known as “Slaves”, which give incredible insight into the mind of the great artist.

Next, it’s onto the Duomo Baptistery, which is famous for its replicas of the bronze doors called the “Gates of Paradise”. Inside the Baptistery packed with beautiful art and fascinating stories about the Medici family who were all baptized here. From there, your guide will take you over to the Duomo Museum to show you what the original facade of the Cathedral actually looked like, while you’ll admire the masterpieces of Michelangelo and Donatello.

From the Museum, you’ll skip lines into the Duomo, where you’ll have special access to a room filled with original statues from the Cathedral’s facade. Your guide will bring the unbelievable history of the Duomo’s construction to life as you explore the building.

Your special access extends to the Cathedral itself, where you’ll step over the velvet ropes to see details up close. After seeing all, there is to see inside the Cathedral, you’ll visit the Duomo Terraces where you’ll use a special entrance to skip the line and climb all the way up to the top of the Duomo for the city’s most amazing views.
