Full description
A visit to the cupola of the Florence Duomo is a must-do, but with it comes big crowds and long lines. Skip the line with your guide, climb to the top, and soak up the spectacular views of the city. It’s the perfect way to see Florence.

Meet your guide and climb to the top, courtesy of your priority entrance. Hear how the construction of the duomo began at the end of the 13th century and took 2 centuries to complete. Marvel at the marble floors but don't forget to look up - the frescos above are just as immense.

After your tour of the dome, feel free to explore the rest of the 5 sites - your ticket is valid for 3 days.
  • Priority entry to the dome
  • 1-hour guided tour in English, Italian or German
  • Headsets to hear the guide
  • Entrance to the Cathedral, the Crypt, the Baptistry, and Museo dell’Opera (ticket valid for 3 days)
