Join Our Accademia, Duomo Climb, and Cathedral Tour in Florence – with exclusive access.

If you only have one day for a tour in Florence, go for this one!

This three-hour tour covers the major monuments: the Accademia Gallery which houses  Michelangelo’s David, the Cathedral, and its cupola (the Italian translation of “dome”).

We organize the pre-reserved tickets, so you do not lose time searching for them while you’re on vacation.


The Tour’s First Half: Accademia Gallery (priority access)

Meet your expert guide, and head into the Accademia Gallery more quickly through a separate entrance, thanks to your pre-reserved tickets. We arrange everything in a small group or private tour for a more interactive and personalized experience. Through this intimate lens, discover the Accademia and see Michelangelo’s David, easily the most famous sculpture in the world. With help from your guide, you’ll learn the story of the famous David statue and its creator, Michelangelo. You’ll also get to see Michelangelo’s unfinished and powerful work, “Prisoners,” along with the masterpieces of other famous artists.


The Tour’s Second Half: The Cathedral of Florence, including a climb up its dome (priority access) 

Continue the tour in Duomo Square, where your expert guide reveals the mysteries of the most famous monument in the heart of Florence. Again, being in our small group or private tours will ensure that you get an intimate glimpse of this amazing area of Florence. 

Learn about the Cathedral and its construction through the centuries and how it came to be the center of Florence’s religious life. Listen as your guide illuminates the Cathedral’s relationship with the rest of the magnificent buildings in Duomo Square. 

Visit the imposing Cathedral of Florence, which dominates the Florence skyline. Appreciate it as an artistic wonder as much for its size and as its amazing marble decorations. Enjoy the beauty of priceless treasures of Gothic and Renaissance art while strolling around the Cathedral and the other monuments of Duomo Square (St. John’s Baptistery and Giotto’s bell tower). The Brunelleschi Pass included with your booking will give you exclusive access to these structures for 72 hours.

After having discovered the secrets of the Cathedral, get ready to climb the  Dome at your own pace! The cupola, realized by the architect Brunelleschi, is quite famous for many reasons: its size (as it’s the world’s largest stone dome) and its internal decoration (inside is the largest frescoed surface in the world).

During the climb, admire the structure’s secrets, which will be visible as you traverse along its antique passages. You’ll also gaze upon the most important artwork contained in the Cathedral, visible up close from the Dome’s internal terraces. After having reached the top, you can admire scenic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.

As both the Accademia and the Cupola are understandably quite  famous, they are also notoriously difficult to find tickets for. This tour is therefore a great investment which allows you to both save precious vacation time and appreciate the potentially overwhelming series of artwork with a knowledgeable, yet personable, guide.

After the tour, you can continue using your Brunelleschi Pass, which will give you access to the Museum, Santa Reparata, and the Baptistery for the following 72 hours!
