- Enjoy a spectacular view of the city
- Climb to the top of the Cupola, the highest point in Florence
- See an admirable creation of art by Filippo Brunelleschi
DescriptionThe exterior view of the Cupola is a showstopper, but the only way to see the inside of the dome up close and enjoy the extraordinary view of Florence is to climb its 463 steps. Discover how the Cupola was designed and built by Brunelleschi in 1418. Find out why the corridors are so narrow and admire Giorgio Vasari's frescoes of the Last Judgment (1572-9) on your way up. Look down and on the base, just above the drum, see the balcony started, but never finished, in 1507. Hear about the fascinating story of the balcony and the unfinished eighth side from your guide. Once you climb to the top of the Cupola, you will be enchanted by the panoramic view of Florence in front of your eyes. Listen to the history and art of this Duomo Square and answer any of your questions regarding Duomo. Enrich your tour with optional additions: • Wine Tasting: If you have a special love for all that is Italian, add a Tuscan wine tasting to your experience. Spend time with a wine expert and taste six different Tuscany wines while enjoying a platter of Tuscan Appetizers.
