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!

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

It’s also essential because we organize pre-reserved tickets, so you do not lose time waiting in a long line while you’re on vacation.

Tour’s first half: Accademia Gallery (skipping the line)

Meet your expert guide for your tour at the Accademia and head in faster with pre-reserved tickets through a separate entrance. This is a small group or a private tour for a more interactive and personalized experience. Visit the Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David, easily the most famous sculpture in the world. Learn the story of the famous David statue and its creator Michelangelo. Once inside, also see Michelangelo’s unfinished and powerful work named Prisoners, along with works of other famous artists.

Tour’s second half: the Cathedral of Florence and its Dome to climb (skipping the line)

Continue your tour into Duomo Square and follow your expert guide to discover the most famous monument in the heart of Florence. Benefit from their intimate knowledge in this small-group tour.

Learn about the Cathedral and its construction through the centuries and how it came to be the center of Florence’s religious life. Brunelleschi Pass will give you exclusive access for 72 hours. Benefit from your guide’s knowledge to understand its relationship with the rest of the magnificent buildings in the square.

Visit the imposing Cathedral of Florence dominating the skyline. See it as an artistic wonder for its size and 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).

After having discovered the secrets of the Cathedral, get ready for the Dome’s climb at your own leisure! The cupola by the architect Brunelleschi is very famous for many reasons, like its size (it’s the largest dome in stone) and internal decoration (it hides the largest frescoed surface all over the world).

During the climb, see the structure’s secrets visible along the original passages and see the most important artworks contained in the Cathedral, visible from the Dome’s internal terraces. After having reached the top you can admire scenic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscany.

Both the Accademia and the Cupola are very famous for many reasons, and rightly so they are notorious for the difficulty to get tickets. This tour is a great investment to save your time and to appreciate the potentially overwhelming series of artworks with a knowledgeable yet personable guide.

The tour includes the Brunelleschi Pass that will give access to the Museum and the Baptistery for 72 hrs! 

Truly a treat and a wonderful tour!

The tour guide was prompt, attentive, very informative and truly took interest in what we were interested in hearing more about and seeing more of. She took the time to learn about our interests and catered to some of the covered discussions regarding our interests.

The pace was perfect and covered everything we expected.

Veronica was our guide for the evening and we couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgeable guide. It was absolutely worth it for me and my wife. Looking forward to visiting Florence again, we wish we had more time!

Chiara was amazing! Completely informed and her pace was perfect!

Chiara was our guide and she was really awesome! The tour was small group, so she was able to really explain things, take our time, and take pictures. The dome climb at the end was worth it for the view also!
