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.
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.
