See the entire city from a single point by climbing to the top of Florence's Dome. Join a guided tour with local expert guides to discover the structure's full history.

Highlights

  • 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
  • Indulge your sweet tooth with an optional gelato tasting

Description

The 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 the Florence city in front of your eyes. Add to your experience by selecting one of the options that includes a gelato tasting after your Cupola tour. Listen to the history and art of this Duomo Square and answer any of your questions regarding Duomo.
