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

Our Duomo Complex Tour covers the most predominant monuments in the heart of Florence. It focuses on the historical and cultural significance of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and its complementary structures, all explained by an expert local guide.

Get priority admission to the octagonal Baptistery of St. John, which is renowned for its ceiling decorated by golden mosaics, and its gleaming bronze doors, called the Gates of Paradise. Gaze at the relief work on the detailed panels, which surprisingly aren’t the originals. The authentic bronze East Doors are currently on display in the Duomo Museum, which will be the next stop on your tour.

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

The last stop is Brunelleschi’s Dome. Thanks to your pre-reserved timed tickets, you will have priority access to climb the 463 steps of this famous dome. As you do so, admire the 150-foot wide arched structure above you, which was constructed 180 feet above the ground without scaffolding. Once inside, you can also take in the wonderful frescoes of The Last Judgment by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari, still among the largest fresco paintings in the world!

At the top of the Dome, enjoy breathtaking views of Tuscany and Florence as you soak up the best experience in the city.

Your Brunelleschi Pass, valid for 72 hours, allows you to enjoy all the elements of the Duomo Complex.
