What to expect

Discover everything about the magnificent Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in the company of an expert guide. Better known as the Duomo, this timeless masterpiece has become the symbol of the city of Florence and Italy. You will skip the long lines at the entrance so you'll have more time to explore the interior of this stunning architectural marvel of white and green marble dominated by the imposing Dome by Brunelleschi.

Admire the grandiose design of the building illuminated by the light that passes through beautiful stained glass windows. Your guide will take you on a journey through time and make you discover the history of the creation of the Duomo: learn about its origins as a small church in the 7th century, and how it became the third largest cathedral in the world after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London. Your guide will vividly recall stories of the innovative techniques used by Filippo Brunelleschi to build the ingenious Dome, which will leave you speechless.

You will also be mesmerized by Zuccari and Vasari's frescoes depicting The Last Judgment on the most extensive surface ever decorated with this painting technique. Thanks to a preferential route reserved exclusively for your group, you will have the privilege to access the area located below the Dome and marvel at the amazing fresco even closer. After the guided tour, you can stay inside the Cathedral as long as you'd like and continue the visit at your own pace.
