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.

Wonderful tour
My family thoroughly enjoyed the Duomo tour and the Ciaoflorence tour guide did a fantastic job. It was very interesting to explore the crypt, the main floor of the complex, as well as the terraces. The views from the terrace were spectacular and we were lucky to have clear sunny skies. The trip to the top of the dome was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this tour!

Hilltop towns and wine in Tuscany!
A very well organised and relaxing day tour of historic sites in Tuscany! The guides were kind and informative and the transport comfortable. I enjoyed the wine tasting on a family run wine estate so much!

What a great day!
We did this tour yesterday on our last day staying in Florence. 100% would recommend. We had two very
lovely tour guides (Francesco and stanislava) and a friendly bus driver. We had a fantastic day seeing many things that we wouldn't have gotten to see on our own. It's a very big day packed full of fun activities, but had a really good mix of free time as well so you can choose how youd like to experience each place. The wine tasting was very generous portions and we also got to try lovely cheeses, breads, oils (including truffle oil), and balsamic vinegars! It was very interesting learning about the history of each place and having time to explore. A must do tour when in florence. The only thing we would say is allow plenty of time to find the meeting point as we didnt find the instructions very clear and we along with a few others we spoke to ended up running to find it on time. It would've been better to maybe meet out the front of the station and walk to where the buses are. Or have a link to the map with the specific spot to meet pinned. Other then that it was a fantastic day!
