This is not to be missed! Fantastic views from the top, but it’s probably best to make an early start. Some of the stairway is quite narrow and steep, and in places there is no handrail. Timed entry means that there aren’t too many people...More
This was the most memorable thing we did at this site. Do not let the 463 steps deter you from doing this. There are plenty of places to stop and rest along the way up and down. This is worth the climb!
So access to the cupola requires a duomo ticket (which gets you into the museum, cathedral, crypt, etc.) and a reservation time (this is free). We had a 1pm slot during the week and got in line for our "wave", about 10 mins prior. We...More
A visit to the Duomo in Florence is a must. But a tour inside and to the top of the Cupola (dome) is amazing. The interior walk (climb) is interesting and a little tiresome having to climb about 460 steps, but the reward at the...More
The best way to get to the top of the dome is to buy a skip the line ticket which most of the guys and girls shout out they have or have to offer. It is around 50Euro but grants you access, ONE TIME only...More
I believe it is even offensive to write a review of one of the most renowned masterpieces of the Renaissance art 😏
It is just beautiful, magnificent, and impressive. My suggestion would be to read something about it and its author before going there to...More
The walk up to the top of the dome is hot and narrow, but so worth it! It's something like 450 steps and it is very twisty too. Once you get to the top, you can see for miles! It is just breathtaking. After the...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.

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 face it (and I fully understand those who can't) it really is worth it. My other half couldn't face the climb. If you can't make it then make sure you spend some time in the museum opposite the Cathedral instead.....usually included on the same ticket if you go there within 72 hours.
