Important Information

  • Please check your email the day before the tour. Please note that the number of attractions depends on the selected option. Free admission to Florence Cathedral is only for the main part of the church, excluding the dome, baptistry, museum or bell tower. The cathedral is usually open from 10 am to 5 pm. Sightseeing during mass and scheduled events is limited. It is advised to cover your shoulders and knees when visiting the churches in Florence. For the best experience, we will limit the group size to 25 guests per guide, so that everyone can get personal attention, ask questions and hear commentary clearly. We can arrange additional guides for larger groups. Skip-the-line tickets to the Leonardo da Vinci Museum provide faster entry without queuing at the ticket office, but you may have to queue at the entrance. 3-hour tour only: due to the museum regulatons, 1 licensed guide can lead a group of 1-20 people, so the price of the tour will be higher if you need more than 1 guide.
