Full description
Enjoy our exclusive Dome Experience. Avoid the long line to visit the dome with one of our expert tour guides. Climb the 463 steps and reach the top of Brunelleschi's architectural masterpiece with the commentary of our local guide. Discover the interior of the Dome. Climbing up the dome, enjoy the extraordinary view of Florence. From the top, you will see the entire Florence skyline. The cathedral's octagonal dome was erected between 1418 and 1434, it based on a design by Filippo Brunelleschi. At that time people thought it would be hard to finish that project, so in 1418 Brunelleschi started a competition to convince others that his project would be valid. The project was accepted only in 1420. Now it is still here, it is a masterpiece capable of withstanding lightning, earthquakes, and the passage of time.

When I booked the activity they gave me a choice between 2 languages, I chose Spanish and when I got to the site they told me it was only in English, without prior notice. They did not communicate anything or give me a solution. I will no longer contract with them. Above more expensive than in other companies.

We arrived 5 mins before our tour and were told off by our guide, although we explained we couldn’t find the correct entrance, she was less than friendly!
