  • Enjoy a guided tour around the religious area of Florence lasting around 1 hour.
  • Step inside the Cathedral avoiding any queue on this 100% skip-the-line tour
  • Admire the longest medieval cathedral worldwide from a privileged roped off area
  • Stand directly under Brunelleschi's dome by the cathedral's high altar


Enjoy this informative guided tour exploring the Florentine religious center by walking around all buildings of the vast Piazza del Duomo: Baptistery, Belltower, Cathedral and culminating in the visit of the interior of the Florentine Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, one of the largest churches in the world, with its impressive stone pillars, stained glass windows and its sensational dome and its frescoes. On this skip-the-line tour, walk 'beyond the ropes,' a restricted area along the left lateral aisle, taking you to stand right by the high altar with the huge Brunelleschi's dome and its amazing frescoes above your head—a truly special and unmissable experience when in Florence. Please note that you will be entering a church therefore shoulders must be covered and shorts/skirts are allowed only if reaching the kneecap. The first part of the tour, outdoors, lasts around 55 minutes, then the visit of the Cathedral will last 45 minutes. Backpacks, ladies bags that can be worn on the back, luggages, bulky sling bags are not allowed inside the Cathedral. If you must take them with you, consider that you will have to stop at the luggage deposit of the Cathedral (free of charge) and you may lose part of the tour if you find a line there.
