Full description
Meet your local guide in front of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Fiore, and enter the Cathedral directly skipping the notoriously long line. This tour is perfect for those who want to see the full majesty of the Duomo, but who are on a tight schedule. Admire breathtaking frescoes by Paolo Uccello and Andrea del Castagno. Marvel at a 15th-century clock which boasts a unique counter-clockwise mechanism.
 
Walk through the architecturally stunning building, which features a huge nave, a lily-shaped apse, and frescoes of “The Last Judgment” by Giorgio Vasari. Vasari, Michelangelo’s most illustrious pupil painted these frescoes as a tribute to his master. Awestruck after seeing the Sistine Chapel, Vasari emulated his master’s dramatic style using Filippo Brunelleschi's dome as his canvas. Visit Brunelleschi’s tomb which is also located in the Duomo.
