The Duomo is a top 3 attraction for sure. It's so overwhelming that it's near impossible to describe. Recommend buy tickets online or in advance to avoid the long, long lineups. Beware street hawkers selling 'shortcut' tickets.
We had tried to book a time before we arrived in Florence but this proved difficult. We were lucky, on Sunday morning we were able to book for Tuesday and got the 9 am slot. It is a long (very hard) climb up a lot...More
Used Duomo Dome Skip the Line Tour 7779P16 with Rosella from ACCORD Innovative Tourist Solutions. You can tell that Rosella LOVES her city of Florence. She knows the history and speaks with passion when she tells you about it. This tour is NOT for the...More
It was crazy busy on the day we visited the Cathedral, so make sure to go early to get in line. Modest dress is required. The art, artifacts and history of this building is truly incredible. Make sure to also visit and climb the bell...More
When touring the Duomo, it is advisable to go with a group tour to skip the entry line which can be extremely long. You will still have a line for Security but groups have a special access entry which again is much faster. And if...More
We had to wait 3 days to get climbing tickets. I suggest skipping the long line to see the duomo itself as you can see most of it from the climbing section which does require reservations. We did all the other sections without much of...More
Dome tickets were sold out until Friday and it's Wednesday. Joined tour through Visit Europe Today last minute and was able to jump right in and still see the done. Heights may be an issue. Wasn't too much to climb but not much air circulation...More
It is very amazing to see this attraction up close. Use to just read this in the book of Da Vinci Code and as being pictured In the movie of Tom Hanks. This is how I imagined it would be. It is so educational, although...More
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

With advance reservations and our Rick Steves audio guide We did four museums in 8 hours. We did a1.5 hour abbreviated version of the Ufizzi while still being able to appreciate what we saw. Then we went to the Bargello. Break for lunch and then we clmbed tne Duomo and the to the Academy to see the David. By the fourth we were over tired. We got lost several times, even with a map, so schedule time between stops to be lost. We found the BEST lunch place while lost. I wish we wrote it down.
