What To Expect
To start off the tour, witness an evocative introduction movie played in an ancient rectory private room located in the Duomo square. The video introduction will allow you to go back over the history of Florence, the Cradle of Renaissance. See how the city and its monuments have grown through the centuries with a particular focus on the monuments making part of the Duomo complex.
After watching, go on a guided visit of the interiors of the magnificent Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral and its panoramic north terrace. It is an exclusive place from where you will have a priority access to the famous Dome Brunelleschi. Accompanied by a licensed English speaking guide, enter Santa Maria del Fiore where you will discover the superb works of art such as Paolo Uccellos clock, Vasaris frescos and Bandinellis marble choir.
Then, have the chance to get to one of the exclusive terraces of the Cathedral and let your eyes feast on the magnificent scenery around you. From this breath-taking location, see the city center and admire the wonderful hills surrounding it. At the end of the guided tour, continue your visit on your own. From the north terrace, climb up to the magnificent Dome, where you can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view of Florence.
At the end of your visit, just a few steps away from the Cathedral square, indulge in a delicious taste of Chianti wine and tidbits of cheese with balsamic vinegar. Visit other monuments at the Duomo Complex such as the Baptistery, Crypt of St. Reparata and the Giottos bell tower as you wish.
To cap off the day, you can choose to have a Tuscan lunch with drinks in the heart of the Madicean district near the Cathedral square.
