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. (Climbing of Giotto's belltower is reserved at 12:45pm for participants to our morning tour and at 6:00pm for participants to our afternoon tour).

The Duomo tour focused a lot on the art and architecture of the building. As such, we were treated to many little details and history that went into the visual elements of the building. Lots of stuff I heard about in history classes, but got to connect to actual things. This isn’t a history of Florence, but focuses on the art around the Duomo and museum. Very interesting and our guide was fantastically knowledgeable to give us info on what to see.

Our guide was very informative and lovely. She did an awesome job of engaging our group, answering questions. I enjoyed it. I won’t alter my 5 star rating but the only con to this was the queue (even though it was “skip the line”). It was packed, so prepare or if you’re lucky it you may not need to queue.
