Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See the Duomo in its entirety on this tour! Skip past the long lines with your ticket to explore the Duomo’s breathtaking interior. Then, enjoy privileged access to the terraces—off limits to many visitors—before climbing Bruneschelli’s Dome for 360-degree views of Florence.
Your Duomo tour begins in central Florence, where you meet your guide and small group. Skip the long lines collecting outside of the Duomo and enjoy direct access with your ticket. Explore the stunning interior, with Paolo Uccello’s 'The Last Judgment' on display, as well as Federico Zuccari and Giorgio Vasari’s immense fresco that gleams within the dome’s interior.

Soak up private access to the terraces, 105 feet (32 meters) above ground, and enjoy views from an area often closed to the public. See the Renaissance city stretched out below and take in Brunelleschi’s Dome up close. Then, to witness the views from the top of the dome, venture up the steep stairway on your own.

After descending back to ground level, part ways with your guide and enjoy access to the other Duomo Complex Monuments: Baptistery, Giotto Bell Tower and Opera del Duomo Museum with your ticket, valid for 72 hours.

Great Experience

This was very convenient and enjoyable with no lines and a limited group size. We had a great tour guide that made the experience even better. The view from the terrace is gorgeous as well being at the base of the dome. Didn’t quite have the stamina to climb to the coupala. Would do it again!

First off this is one of the most awesome places to visit in Florence for the view from the top alone! Having the ability to avoid the lines is a must all year long, let alone during the Spring and Summer. The climb to any level of the dome or the outside ledges is not for the faint of heart or anyone who has issues with climbing stairs or being in tight spaces. The worst part of the climb is when you ascend to the top of the dome. It is steep, narrow and surprise it's also the same route for coming back. If you can manage the slow and awkward part f this trip you will be rewarded with the most glorious view in Italy! The guided tour portion of the tour was not so good. Very difficult to hear especially with the crowd noise, winds and just being in the right position to hear the guide. Would have been better if they issued headsets. Otherwise it is worth the price just to get in quick and avoid the crowds.

Excellent tour. Guide very knowledgeable. The wine tasting was very enjoyable and very friendly family run business. Delicious wine and cheese. The food was fine at the traditional Italian restaurant but unfortunately spoilt by a very rude and grumpy waiter! Change the restaurant or please suggest some customer service training to staff. Other than that tour highly recommended.

Again, after booking this tour through Viator, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we were the only two guests, and we were to be given a private tour by the guide who was excellent. After touring the lower portion of the Duomo, we were ushered to a private stairway that lead to a balcony that ringed/overlooked the inner sanctuary. Later we had a tour of the lower rooftop before proceeding on the Dome climb. The tour was amazing. This portion I would rate as a 4.8. After leaving the guide, the wine tasting was anticlimactic. Perhaps if sampling was more extensive, we might have consider purchasing some. We are picky in this regards.

This was sooooo worth it. The video they have you watch in the beginning was a bit odd but after that its amazing! You get the VIP treatment aka behind the ropes : Getting to view Florence from the terrace was so cool and it was small group so we werent having to compete to get in the perfect picture spots.

Irene was great and as we were the only two in the group , it was a private tour essentially. BUT we were not taken up the dome or terrace , offered no lunch or wine tasting which was part of the price. We learned loads but felt let down as we did not receive what we paid for.
