Skip the long lines with an exclusive pass, and follow your guide inside the ancient cathedral of Florence. See frescoes by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari, admire the colossal clock by Paolo Uccello, and discover the beauty of the marble floor with its intricate patterns. Walk among the ruins and admire the floor's fine polychrome mosaic with its geometrical decorations. Then, climb the northern terrace of the Duomo’s rooftop.
