    The climb to the top of the dome was worth every step to see the mural and the amazing panoramic views of the city! It can be a challenging climb up some winding stairs and parts of it are steep but manageable. The museum tour was a little rushed but you're able to explore on your own after the tour at a more leisurely pace. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour but be prepared to climb!

    It was a very informative. Our tour guide Anastasia was lovely. Would recommend her. The climb to the top of the Duomo is stunning. It is a challenging hot climb for someone who struggles with cardio. Be absolutely sure of yourself and asks questions about this. We all made it to the top except one dear lady. She was in distress. I am fit and it was a good challenge for me as well.

    Absolutely loved the experience .. our tour guide, Martina was great! She set the context well and gave us a complete briefing of the Dome, and the museum. The tickets only include an entry to the Bell Tower and the Baptistry. Martina also gave us a good recommendation for a restaurant which we ate at. It had the best tiramisu! :) Thank you, Martina!
