Florence Cathedral, St. John Baptistery and The Opera del Duomo Museum: Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 2.5 hours
The climb to the Cupola of the Duomo is heavy, in particular wearing a mask, but is absolutely worth it. The views from above and inside are just spectacular. The guide Manuel gave us all the information while we were climbing the steps so we had enough time once we were on top. I did not like receiving a message the day before that the price of the ticket was now only valid for climbing the Cupola and not for the rest of the Duomo complex anymore .
I love doing places like this. Climbing, exploring, hearing the history or the building and how the problems they faced were overcome. A great feat of engineering. The decor in the Dome inself is just stunning and the views from the roof are fantastic. Make the effort to do this, you will be rewarded with a day to remember. Our ticket also gave us entry to the Bell Tower which meant more stairs but again, well worth it.
Vanop het dak heb je een fantastisch uitzicht op de stad, maar vooral de koepel is het bezoek meer dan waard. Is wat mij betreft even indrukwekkend als de Sixtijnse kapel. Je krijgt ook leuke weetjes te horen over de kathedraal zelf
Just such great value and a real eye opening experience. The guide was a tiny lady who was so knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun and informative.
The views were worth the long climb. Both inside the dome and the views from the top are stunning. Manuel was a great tour guide! Would highly recommend.
