Tours / Florence dome guided tour and all the monuments of the cathedral

Among the masterpieces of Florence that attract viewers from all over the world, the Santa Maria del Fiore Opera Complex is the top site not to be missed for those arriving in this city!

The Fabbriceria della Cattedrale di Firenze was founded in 1296 by the Florentine Republic to oversee the construction of the Duomo and is responsible for its conservation.

The complex is divided into the Baptistery of San Giovanni with the Porta del Paradiso, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Crypt of Santa Reparata, the Dome of Brunelleschi, and Giotto's Bell Tower.

Your visit will take place between these beautiful monuments for 2 hours. Our guide will begin the journey by illustrating the Baptistery and its famous golden vault with Byzantine mosaics. You'll then continue on to the NEW MUSEUM OF THE OPERA DEL DUOMO, with the original Door of Paradise, the Magdalene by Donatello, the Pietà by Michelangelo, and many other Renaissance works. You also cannot miss the ascent to the Dome of Filippo Brunelleschi to discover the mystery of this revolutionary construction along with its frescoes of the sixteenth century- among them, the famous Universal Judgment.

From the top of the dome our guide will introduce you to the artistic beauties of the Cathedral, which you can admire from a privileged place, removed from the crowd below.

The guide will then leave you free to conclude the tour with the ascent to Giotto's Bell Tower, from which you can enjoy the aerial view of an incomparable view of the city of Florence- right from its center!

The complex path that our guide will take is still easy for everyone!
