Duomo Sky Walk - Florence Heaven

US$77.79
Date

Overview
Discover Florence Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral) and see the city from an exclusive and breathtaking point of view: the Duomo terraces and Brunelleschi's magnificent Dome.
Highlights
  • Skip-the-line access means more time spent exploring the Duomo
  • Explore the Duomo’s terraces, which are normally off-limits to the public
  • Visit Brunelleschi’s dome—the Duomo’s highest vantage point
  • Learn more about the history of the Florentine landmark from your licensed guide
What to Expect
This afternoon tour begins as you meet your guide at Florence’s centrally located Piazza della Repubblica. From there, it’s a speedy stroll to the Duomo. With its soaring dome designed by Brunelleschi and ornately painted walls, the cathedral is one of Florence’s most recognizable highlights. With skip-the-line access, you head straight inside. Learn from your guide about the landmark’s history, and discover the masterworks within. Next, head up the staircase and discover an area has been off-limits to most visitors for centuries: its terraces, which at more than 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground offer panoramic views overlooking the city. Take photos of the vista before climbing even higher to the top of Brunelleschi’s dome. The tour finishes inside the Duomo, though you can linger after its conclusion. Your ticket also grants you limited-time access to other Duomo complex sites, including Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistry of San Giovanni.

Francesca led us on a very informative tour of the Florence Duomo, including skywalk. She was so knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was evident. A lot of stairs to climb, but definitely worth it. Not having to wait in line was another big plus!More
