Your Florence Duomo with Terrace Access and Dome Climb tour starts near the majestic Cathedral in Piazza di San Giovanni. Your English-speaking guide will meet you here and lead you by the long slow lines in front of this mesmerizing building. With our privileged access, you can go straight inside without waiting. This will give you time to gaze at the Duomo’s stunning marble floors, the 44 stained glass windows and Vasari’s famous frescoes which were inspired by the Sistine Chapel. Your expert guide will explain the challenges involved in building the largest brick dome in the world and reveal how it required a radical new construction method.

You will then be taken up to the Duomo terraces, where your group have their own timeslot booked. From this birds-eye view, Florence will spread out below you. It is rare to be able to view one of the world’s architectural masterpieces from such a perspective. You’ll also get a much closer view of the frescoes which inspired Dan Brown to write ‘Angels and Demons’. From the terraces, your guide will lead you further inside the dome until you reach the very top. Feel the cool fresh air and take in the views of Florence as very few have seen it since Brunelleschi’s time. 

Once you are back down in the piazza savor the sense of achievement and the feel of the ground beneath your feet. Don’t forget that this tour ticket also gives you free access to the nearby bell tower, the Baptistry, and the Duomo Museum.
