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. Since we still had time, we were able to walk briefly to a neighboring church and to the column that shows the center of Florence and received information about it. 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. Rosella's knowledge of all the years, builders, architects, etc. was very impressive. All in all, a recommendable tour.

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 getyourguide contacted me before the time of the appointment with the guide to confirm the point of contact with him. I recommend this booking platform because it is safe and reliable. and very effective.

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
