Full description
This tour begins at Giotto’s amazing Bell Tower, which is almost as tall as the Dome itself. At the top of the Campanile, your tour guide will tell you about the Opera del Duomo complex. Admire the unbelievable view from the top. Next, descend the tower and explore the Cathedral's beautiful exterior. Make a stop at the Baptistery to see its famous golden vault doors and hear the story behind them. This is where Dante Alighieri, one of the most famous Renaissance poets, and many more Renaissance men were baptized. Then head to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo to see the original masterpieces that once stood in the cathedral. Inside the museum are Michelangelo's Pietà Bandini, the Cantories of Donatello, Luca della Robbia, and the so-called "Facciatone", which is Arnolfo’s 14th-century life-size facade. See the original Ghiberti's Paradise Gate, Donatello's Magdalene, and the original decorations of Giotto's.

Very friendly and competent guidance

The square in front of the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral was full of people and I was a bit unsure if we could find the meeting point. It was just a click and I could call our guide so it wasn't a problem and we had a very informative and interesting day.
