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.

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.

This tour is fantastic. Our guide Claudio was superb. He was extremely knowledgable and provided us with very interesting facts and anecdotes. The Baptistery, Cathedral and Duomo museum are a must. Highly recommended. The climb up the tower is somewhat claustrophobic but well worth the exercise which involves some 400 steps. The last visit to the tower is at six thirty. Advise any visitor to leave the tower visit until late afternoon to avoid queues and roads go up and down the tower

Loved this tour & our guide was fantastic, so informative & enthusiastic I think you should make it clearer that this didn’t include going up the Duomo as we thought that it did & have since just managed to book to do that before going home but know that others in our group who were leaving before couldn’t get a trip up the Duomo as it was sold out
