Full description

Get off the beaten track and discover one of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore's lesser-known treasures, the Opera del Duomo Museum, on a guided tour. Complete your tour with a visit to the Florence Baptistery, also known as the Baptistery of San Giovanni.

In the company of your guide, explore the wonders of the Opera del Duomo Museum. Marvel at sights such as Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise, Michelangelo's Pietà Bandini, and the Penitent Magdalene.

As you stroll through the museum, discover the mysteries and legends that surround the construction of the world-renowned Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and learn about the race between Brunelleschi and Ghiberti.

You will also have the opportunity to imagine, thanks to a faithful reconstruction of the position of the statues, how the Cathedral facade looked in the original plans.

We booked a small group tour and with only a few people on it, there was ample opportunity to ask questions and interact with the guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. We toured the baptistry and museum then after an overview, we did the Duomo and underground on our own...this was the best way to use the time. Great experience!
