Full description
Discover the heart of Florence and learn all the secrets and the history that lies behind the Duomo Complex. Santa Maria del Fiore, designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, is the third largest church in the world and was the largest church in Europe when it was completed in the 15th Century. Your local guide will show you the main sights while telling you interesting anecdotes on how this masterpiece was created. You’ll also visit the Duomo Museum in which you’ll discover masterpieces of Arnolfo, Ghiberti, Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Antonio Pollaiolo, Verrocchio, and Michelangelo. This is the largest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world. Last but not least, admire the stunning Baptistry of San Giovanni, one of the most ancient churches in Florence, which sits opposite the city's cathedral, the church of Santa Maria del Fiore and its incredible East Door - that Michelangelo called the Gates of Paradise.

    Very knowledgeable guide ! Erica shared insightful info about the cathedral and many interesting details which helped us get a better understanding of the cathedral’s unique structure and story. Visiting without her would have been a shame :) Would also recommend getting the full tour, baptistery and the museum as well, since there is some valuable knowledge to get there !

    La guida era molto brava e sapeva trasmettere le informazioni con entusiasmo! Abbiamo optato per una visita del complesso del Duomo (Duomo, battistero e Museo) and abbiamo fatto bene perché era appassionante. Il biglietto non è un biglietto salta fila ma c'era una delle guide che aveva fatto la coda per il duomo dalla mattina per permetterci di non aspettare troppo per entrare nel Duomo.

    Our guide, Mrs. Enrica, was really very good and engaging. I have a daughter who has finished the third year of artistic high school, and she has really had the opportunity to savor art not only with the infinite beauties that delight the eye, but with the skill of a trained, friendly and always available guide. all our curiosities. Truly a breathtaking experience. Absolutely to try.
