Explore Florence's famous Duomo from top to bottom. Special images and reconstructions will come to life as your guide leads you through the marvelous Cathedral and the Crypt of St. Reparata, where you will be able to see Paolo Uccello’s clock, Vasari’s frescos, and Bandinelli’s marble choir.

During this exclusive tour, you'll also have the chance to step onto the Cathedral's panoramic north terrace where you will be able to admire the center of Florence from above. Enjoy the beautiful 360˚ view of the fantastic hills that surround the city!

You'll continue the visit on your own directly from the north terrace, without any additional queue, using your ticket to climb even higher, up to the magnificent Dome, and enjoy the view of Florence from its highest location.

The visit doesn't stop there. Your ticket also grants you access to the other monuments of the Cathedral complex. On your own, you can visit Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery and the Opera del Duomo Museum within 72 hours from the day booked for the guided tour. The Renaissance is yours to explore!

If you choose the option with lunch you'll end your wonderful experience in the best way with a Tuscan lunch with drinks in a historic restaurant in the heart of the characteristic Medicean district, close to the Cathedral Square.
