Cathedral, Baptistery, Bell Tower private tour with skip-the-line access to the Dome of Florence


This is a in-depth insight into the Duomo complex in Florence. The religious heart of Florence, the Cathedral is also the center of its civic pride, the testimony of Florentine genius and the wealth of Florence in the Middle ages and the Renaissance. We learn how Brunelleschi built his famous dome, discover the interior of the Cathedral and the Baptistery, talk about the Bell Tower and other surrounding buildings and visit the Museum of the Cathedral. This tour also covers such masterpieces as Michelangelo's Pietà and David, the Gates of Paradise, the Byzantine mosaics of the Baptistery, the Altar of St. John the Baptist and several statues by Donatello. After the tour, you will be able to climb the Dome of Florence with skip-the-line access.
On request, the guide will also organize a special private opening to walk the terraces of the Cathedral.
