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. Their commentary will include the new construction process that was invented by Brunelleschi to complete the dome above, which you'll be able to view in detail from the ground floor of the cathedral. 

As you learn about the Duomo’s creation, you will view the beautiful marble 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 within the cathedral.
