Discover the secrets of the buildings of the most famous square of Florence


Do not rush through piazza del Duomo and the church. Slow down and visit with me the newly refurbished Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. You will learn everything about the Paradiso and its gate, the Baptistery and Giotto Bell Tower, you will see all the precious art works by Donatello, Michelangelo, which ornated the interior of the church and understand how Brunelleschi planned and realised the famous Duomo. We will then discover the wonderful mosaics of the Baptistery and the interior of the Duomo.
Finally you can decide to stay in line and climb up the Duomo or the Bell Tower. If you are too exhausted, no worries, the ticket lasts 48 hours!

Itinerary

We will meet at Duomo Square, by Caffè Scudieri at 10. 00 a. m. and start the visit from there. Depending on the reservation at the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, we will walk directly there and visit it or as alternative we will start with the visit of the Baptistery and the Church to end at the Museum.
You can then decide if you want to walk up the Dome or the Bell Tower. A bit of flexibility is required, all the monuments are within 5? walking distance,

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second day with Silvia and she did not disappoint. We decided to change our tour at the last minute and she happily obliged. She was also flexible with regard to the time our tour started, as we were traveling from Siena by train each day. Again, I highly recommend Silvia for tours of Florence, regardless of the itinerary. You can't go wrong.
