The lines were very long for those without a ticket, so you should really buy this if you do not want to wait for hours. The dome and entire complex is really wonderful, you should not miss it. Be sure to pick up your tickets with at least 30 minutes in advance, you have to download the guide and walk a little and also the entrances are not very easy to find.

This visit was very good, we had great weather. The skip-the-line ticket is actually a ticket for entry to a door that is not open to people who do not have this ticket. There were a lot of people and you have to be very strict on the schedules and act quickly between collecting the final tickets and the trip to the cathedral (we did it by electric bike and arrived just in time) Also be careful not to take a too late entry because the access to the campanile (bell tower) and to the cathedral end very early.

I was nervous about these tickets and should have prepared more in advance of our expected visit. Didn’t realize the time scheduled was mandatory for the dome and everything else could be done for the next 72 hours. However, when we showed up after our scheduled time, the staff assisted with virtual tickets and we got in anyways. Definitely not the most informative description but it all worked out.
