great views internally and externally need to be fit and phobia free to climb I didn't my husband did and took lots of pictures stunning and amazing when you relaise architecturally how he managed to design and build this.

Got our tickets directly from their official site, was totally worth it. I enjoyed going up and down the narrow stairways and passages just as much as the view itself. It was an "immersive" experience and would do it over and over again. It's not...More

Well, of course Florence deserves to be seen from above, it is not such a big effort to climb 400+ stairs after all ... I would say the view is not quite as the one in St Peter's Rome, but it is still pretty impressive.

You absolutely must make the climb to the top of the dome if you are physically able. It's a pretty tedious hike and it can be scary, particularly if you've got even a hint of claustrophobia, but the view from the top is so worth...More

The dome offers really fantastic 360 degree views around Florence. Just prior to this I had visited the St Paul’s cathedral in London, which was similar but smaller, and I suppose it highlighted to me how tourism had really dwindled the beauty of this place...More

Duomo
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

Yes you can... but to be honest the climb isn't that hard. The final bit is the tightest but compared to some climbs that I've had in the UK the Duomo was a doddle. The view from the top is brilliant. If you do think you can... More

One line for all because everyone who has tickets to go up the tower is given a specific time to enter. This is different to the cathedral where no entry time is given.

Sort of. A queue forms before the time of people all of whom have timed tickets. At the allotted time the gate opens.
