Tour Description

Towering over the center of Florence, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is a breathtaking sight. But even more impressive than its beauty is the story behind the structure. 

From the 7th-century church that originally stood on the spot, to the final completion of the dome in 1436, you will learn the history of this architectural marvel. Your expert English-speaking guide will lead you through the cathedral while explaining the fascinating story of almost two centuries of building, including the new construction process that was invented by Brunelleschi to complete the massive dome. 

As you learn about the Duomo’s creation, you will view the beautiful marbled floors, elegant stained-glass windows and stunning frescos including Vasari’s The Last Judgement. And with our no wait access, you’ll be able to avoid the long entry lines and spend more time enjoying the sights.

  • Is an advanced booking necessary or can I just show up at the meeting point?

    We strongly advise against arriving at the meeting point without a booking as we cannot guarantee that there will be space left on the tour. Our guides are unable to accept payment for tours so any bookings made on the spot will still need to be processed over the phone with payment by credit card.

  • I would like to add another person to my booking

    We are happy to assist with this request - availability permitting. Please contact our Customer Care Team who can check availability on the tour and take payment for the additional booking, as payment details are not saved in our system for security reasons.

  • How will I recognize the guide?

    Our City Wonders coordinators will be wearing blue polo shirts or jackets at the meeting point for easy recognition and holding a sign with the tour name.
