Description

Stroll along marbled floors beneath the lofted ceilings of ornately painted frescoes, listen to stories of the construction of Florence's 15th-century cathedral, and make the spirited climb to the top of Brunelleschi's Dome for breath-taking 360-degree views of the city..

Meet up with your guide and chat as you walk through winding lanes towards the Gothic Revival façade of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, snapping photos of the gargoyle-laced edifice before you skip the long lines and head straight inside. Zigzag between the towering columns of the main room, getting an up-close look at the devout expressions on the statues of saints that line the walls, or checking out the massive pipe organ that flanks the altar.

When you’re ready to climb, head to the spiral staircase and make your way to the terrace to catch glimpses of the bustling square below, before continuing your trek to the top. Work your way through the airy space of Brunelleschi’s Dome, counting each of the 463 steps that lead to its cap.

At the top, enjoy stunning views of Florence from your breezy perch high above the city’s streets, using on-site binoculars to get magnified views of the surrounding hills. Your tour also includes a ticket to the 12th-century Baptistery, just a few steps from the main cathedral. Inside, find impressive mosaics and imagine the famous baptisms that took place here, including those of Dante and the Medici family.
