What To Expect
Entrance lines during peak seasons can exceed two hours but by pre-booking your priority entrance tickets, you'll ensure that you're spending your time inside this incredible building rather than standing in line!
Discover the history and the curiosities about the church and see the impressive North terrace where you'll have an incredible view over Florence.
Be prepared for a steep and narrow climb, which will definitely be worth it! After the visit of the terrace, you'll keep going up through the "onion layers" or two shells of the dome, passing by fascinating frescoes from esteemed Renaissance artists like Vasari and Zuccari.
Once at the top, enjoy incomparable views over Florence and the Tuscan hills. Walk around the dome's balcony to take photos and soak up the sights while your guide regales you with tales of Filippo Brunellechi, the talented Renaissance architect who created the dome itself.
