Full description

Visit Florence's religious center on a guided tour inside the Baptistery, Cathedral (Duomo), and the Opera del Duomo Museum.

Enjoy a comprehensive guided visit to the interior of Florence Cathedral, one of the largest and most important churches in the world. Construction began in 1296 and ended only in 1436, with the creation of the magnificent dome by Filippo Brunelleschi. 

See the Baptistery, one of the oldest buildings in Florence, built in the Florentine Romanesque style. Then visit the Opera del Duomo Museum, a site that collects original masterpieces from the Duomo Complex.

Among the most important works on display are the original Gates of Paradise by Ghiberti, and Michelangelo's Pietà Bandini. The museum also houses one of the largest collections of Donatello's work in the world.

Finally, climb the three-storied Giotto's Belltower and admire the city skyline dominated by Brunelleschi's immense dome.

This tour was excellent but I’m sorry but I have already forgotten our guide’s name and he is the reason that I say that the tour was excellent. He had a natural in-depth knowledge of Florentine and indeed Italian history. He brought alive the atmosphere of the time of all the architectural monuments that we were looking at. We visited the Baptistry then the Cathedral and finally the Museo del Opera. The tickets he left with us still allow us to climb the Camponile Bell Tower on our own. All perfect. Thank you.

We had THE BEST tour guide. He was so deeply integrated with not just the history of the structures themselves but the people and town. It was so interesting to learn about these iconic places. I also liked that you could climb the bell tower on your own time. 2 hours is the perfect amount of time and is well worth it with the guide to not stand in long lines. Definitely recommend.

The guide Sylvia Botticelli was lovely. She knew so much and was so informative. I wish the tour could’ve gone for longer. I learnt so much and she tied together the info was other aspects of history which contextualised things nicely. The one star off is because the Duomo doesn’t have a separate entrance for tours so we had to join the long line. This wasn’t Sylvia’s fault or the company’s but it’s good to have in mind if you have plans for after the tour. It’s good to have a buffer.
