      This was a fun experience. The guide was informative and entertaining (she had a lovely dry wit which I thoroughly enjoyed.) I was able to appreciate the experience more from her analysis of the architecture, historical context and art work because, on first entry, I was rather stunned by how underwhelming it was by comparison to other churches I have visited in Florence specially and Italy more widely. The dome, of course, was a monumental piece of art, and the climb to the terraces and the dome itself brought breath-taking views of the city. However, the price of the ticket was pretty steep given the rather brief experience!

      The guide was amazing! Full of facts and Energy. Lucked out with weather ..the view was not to be missed. I'm so glad I finally went inside the cathedral too. 4th trip here. Lines are always so long ...but late September wasn't too bad. There is always a line due to security ..which is great. The cathedral is excavated below and it was super interesting..... Always good the go with Get your Guide!

      What an amazing tour!

      Our tour guide was awesome. We went on the 2:30 2 hour tour on 6/22 with our tour guide and she was fantastic. Don’t remember her name but I think it started with an M. She did a fantastic job, was easy to understand, very knowledgeable and waited for everyone to be around her before she spoke.
