What to expect

Join the Official Duomo Tour and receive a personalized “WELCOME SERVICE” at the entrance; you will skip the long line and you will be accompanied inside the Complex with a guide.

Visit the Duomo complex and Brunelleschi's amazing Dome, one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, from which you can enjoy the magnificent view of the city.

Enter without queuing up from a private entrance, be accompanied by our Certified Guide along the secret passages of 1400, admire the largest painted area in the world (3600 square meters) and the beautiful marble floor of the cathedral. Discover the construction technique and some of the original machinery invented by Filippo Brunelleschi, climbing the 463 steps.

The Dome is a masterpiece capable of withstanding lightning strikes, earthquakes, wars and the passage of time... With its diameter of 46 meters is the largest dome in the world built without scaffolding, using a double shell with an intermediate space. The inner shell (more than two meters thick) is made of light bricks set in a herringbone pattern and is the self-supporting structural element, while the outer dome simply acts as a windproof cladding. From the top of the lantern, at a height of 100 meters, you will dominate the skyline of Florence and the Tuscan countryside.

The entrance ticket to the Dome is valid for 72 hours and is also valid for the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, the Bell Tower and the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Baptistery.
