I studied abroad in Florence and never made it to the top of the Duomo, so I was really exciting about this tour and it didn't disappoint. It's perfect if you want to see the whole Duomo- the church, secret basement and the terraces. You can also walk all the way to the top if you want, which was my favorite part. Our tour guide was really great- we heard a lot about the history but also some different stories that you may not have heard on all tours. She was also very friendly and spoke excellent english. I would highly suggest if you want to get the full Duomo experience- a must see in Florence!

Description

During this tour you’ll admire a breathtaking panorama of Florence from the Duomo’s 32-metre-high terraces, and climb to the top of the Dome.

You’ll get a closer look at Brunelleschi's incredible cupola, a masterpiece of art and architecture that still remains unmatched and whose building techniques are still shrouded in mystery.

You’ll be given an exclusive pass to avoid the queues at the Dome. Your professional guide will introduce you to Giorgio Vasari’s unique frescoes, and the fascinating crypt that contains the archaeological remains of the ancient Santa Reparata cathedral.

Afterwards, you’ll visit the northern rooftop terrace and enjoy stunning views over the city. You’ll also have the chance to join a tour covering the Duomo’s art and history, and discover its hidden terrace.

Easy to find your guide. Small group which was lucky, but made the experience that much better. Amazing place.

Florence - Small Group VIP Duomo Tour & Secret Terraces
My mom and I went on this tour today and it was fantastic! Our tour guide Elizabeth was excellent, engaging and knowledgeable. Elizabeth provided a helpful history, such as how committed the Cultural Ministry is to doing good upkeep on the Duomo and other precious structures which they maintain. We learned a lot and had a great time. It is a very good value. Getting to skip the lines AND go out on the terraces is fun all by itself, especially on a day when you find out upon arrival that all tickets to go in the Duomo are sold out for the next three days. The tour price also gives you access for 48 hours to all six of the Grande Museo de Duomo, so we definitely plan to take advantage of that. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

Excellent way to spend a day in Tuscany
We throughly enjoyed this day trip, covering a lot of Tuscany with no stress.
Our tour guide Eva Maria was unfailingly cheerful , patient and energetic, dealing with a large bus load and speaking both English and Spanish.
I left an expensive hat at the last stop and Eva phoned the winery for me, collected the hat on her next visit, and posted it back to me in Australia, refusing reimbursement for all her efforts.It was very kind of her, thanks again Eva Maria!

Great day
Really enjoyed the day. We only had a short time to see Tuscany area and this was a great tour to see a few villages and then do a tour of a small winery.

Good value for money and very informative
If you have limited time this is a great way to see more of the area. Constantine was an excellent guide and Gabriel a good driver. Lunch was great. The wine tasting fun and interesting. Plenty of time in each place.
