Our guide, Mrs. Enrica, was really very good and engaging. I have a daughter who has finished the third year of artistic high school, and she has really had the opportunity to savor art not only with the infinite beauties that delight the eye, but with the skill of a trained, friendly and always available guide. all our curiosities. Truly a breathtaking experience. Absolutely to try.

The cathedral itself is to be forgotten inside - despite the dome fresco by Vasari (partly). The originals are in the museum. The long queuing doesn't pay off at all. The museum is impressive, as is the baptistery.

it was super easy to book a ticket on line. Also it is an amazing museum. Very worthwhile to visit, a must for your trip to Florence.

Amazing history and art work in a beautiful setting
