Full description
Located in the heart of Florence, this stunning Cathedral is one of the most visited places in Europe and definitely a must-see during your stay in Florence. When you walk to the square, you'll find this monumental square with Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery of St. John, Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, and others, including the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. With this tour, you'll have the chance to enjoy a guided tour inside the cathedral. As you explore the inside of the cathedral, your guide will show the main artworks conserved within. The construction of the Cathedral began in the 13th Century thanks to Arnolfo di Cambio and was finished later with the magnificent Dome created by Filippo Brunelleschi in the 1420s. It's a huge and massive construction. With this tour, you'll have the chance to enjoy a 1h guided tour of the Cathedral where our guide will show the main artworks still conserved inside.

The tour guide in Spanish was very good at explaining and welcoming. The only negative point was to find her, because on the website it said that she would be wearing a green shirt with the company logo, and she was in black and the place is not a location for the company, it is on the street and as there are many tourists, otherwise having a refenxial is hard to find. But the tour was very good.

My sister and I had a great time, a special thanks to our guide Emanuela, very prepared and able to involve us. Of course, considering the price paid, adding a little more to the history of the dome would have been top notch. But it seems these explanations were not included.

Started off bad as could not find the guide at place indicated by GYG. There are numerous tour groups in front and we checked with all five and were not the correct ones. So contacted GYG and informed them of this; they then contacted actual tour provider whom gave different location to meet tour guide. I checked the tour guide website and they gave correct meeting point, so appears GYG doesn't have correct location. Anyway, they rescheduled us for the next day, same time, and we met at the CORRECT meeting point. The first half hour was spent getting some history, and then we had to get in the same line as everyone else. However, a tour guide representative had saved space in the line, which by that time had moved up. But we still had another 15 minutes in line. So this is clearly not a skip the line tour, which is what we thought it was when booking. Just be aware of that. Once we got inside was fine. The inside is OK, but not as spectacular as the outside for sure.
