      In the company of the presence of an excellent guide Tiziana, she told us a little about Florence passing through the characteristic alleys and then accompanied us to the dome. Here, too, he delighted us with anecdotes about the dome, showed with his tablet an explanatory video of the methods that are supposed to have been used to build it. Really interesting all and then I very good ice cream. I recommend doing it.

      Beautiful experience, our guide Tiziana explained very well and provided a lot of information both during the walk in medieval Florence and in the climb to the dome. Entering the dome you can also quickly see the interior of the cathedral (if you take the ticket for the cathedral instead, you cannot get under the dome). Highly recommended

      The tour of an hour to the areas adjacent to the Duomo is recommended. The guide Silvia, in addition to being very prepared on purely historical notions, told interesting curiosities about the city and its buildings. The gesture of giving a free ice cream to the Strega Nocciola ice cream parlor was much appreciated.
