Visit the Baptistery and Museum, climb the Dome or the Tower


The religious centre of the City hides a lot of secrets: we will admire the exterior of the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral). Depending on the days there can be a line to go inside, you will decide whether to enter or not, Then will visit the inside of the Baptistery and the Museum, here we will see one of the last works by Michelangelo.
The tour is not focused on religion, it introduces to the understanding of the square and the history of Florence.
We will also learn about the Medici, see statues, paintings and an interesting room dedicated to the construction of the Dome.
The terrace of the Museum will amaze you with an incredible view.
After the tour with me, you can decide to climb the Bell tower or Dome

Itinerary

-Cathedral Square (outside of the Duomo)
-Baptistery
-Opera del Duomo Museum

After the tour with me you have a 72h valid ticket to climb the Dome (with a reservation) and/or the Bell Tower

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Scudieri bar (Piazza di San Giovanni, 19/R, 50123 Firenze)

End location: Near the Cathedral

Duration: 2 hours

The museum is closed the first Tuesday of each month.
The Cathedral entrance is free of charge, this causes long queues especially from April to October. For this reason, if you want to enter, we could wait for over 20 min.

***Please remember that booking a RESERVATION time to climb the Dome is mandatory, it has to be done in advance (no reservation fee) so I need to check the availabiliy before booking the time entrance for you.
