Must-Do Tour in Florence! All tickets are pre-reserved.

Join our Duomo Complex Tour covering the most predominant monuments in the heart of Florence. Focus on the historical and cultural significance of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and its complementary structures explained by an expert local guide.

In the company of an expert, get priority admission to the octagonal Baptistery of St. John, best known for its ceiling decorated by golden mosaics and its gleaming bronze doors known as the Gates of Paradise. Join other tourists in gazing at the relief work on the detailed panels and no doubt be surprised to learn that these are not the original bronze doors – the authentic East Doors are currently on display in the Museum.

The tour continues in the Duomo Museum, where incredible masterpieces like the gates of the Baptistery, Donatello’s sculptures, and the original dome’s wooden scaffoldings are exhibited. You could spend hours wandering through the displays, but your guide will focus on highlights such as Michelangelo’s Pietà and other magnificent works of art.

The last stop is Brunelleschi’s Dome. Skipping the line thanks to pre-reserved timed tickets, you will climb the 463 steps whilst admiring the 150-foot wide dome constructed 180-feet above the ground without scaffolding. Once inside you will also admire the wonderful frescoes of the Last Judgment by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari, still among the largest fresco paintings in the world!

Rosella's knowledge of all the years, builders, architects, etc. was very impressive. All in all, a recommendable tour.

We were lucky enough to do the tour with Rosella and without any other visitors. First, we went to the Duomo Museum, where we saw many of the original sculptures, mosaics, etc., which we then found as copies in the cathedral, the baptistery, etc. The museum was very impressive and much more understandable with the explanation of our guide. Then we went to the baptistery and we got explanations about the cathedral and dome. Finally, the access to the dome. The ascent of the more than 400 stairs at 28 degrees outside temperature was quite sweaty, the observation of the inner dome and the view from the outer dome over Florence made up for everything.

I recommend this company because it is safe and reliable and very effective.

visit with a very learned private guide. Climb to the dome a little difficult but extraordinary to see the frescoes of the dome so beautiful. Arrived at the top, a magnificent panorama of the city and its hills. I was pleasantly surprised that they contacted me before the time of the appointment with the guide to confirm the point of contact with him.

Sensational!

I can only thank you again. With such a tour always happy to go. She really excited us for the old masters. Recommended. If you are afraid of heights, you should think about it. The inner galleries in the dome could then be difficult. But at the top you are compensated for it and the 460 steps are forgotten ... until the descent
