Fall in love with one of the jewels of the Italian Renaissance with this fantastic guided tour of Florence Cathedral. You can also discover the amazing Baptistery and the fascinating Cathedral Museum.
Florence Cathedral Guided Tour
At the scheduled time, we will meet up in Florence's beautiful Piazza del Duomo, opposite the Loggia del Bigallo Museum. Then we enter the interior of this temple, one of the most important in the world and a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance.
Inside, we will learn all about the origins of this cathedral which was built in honor of Santa Maria del Fiore, the patron saint of Florence. You will also hear all about the magnificent architecture of the building and the amazing works of art that adorn its walls inside.
This fantastic experience will give you a new perspective on what has been the icon of Florence since its construction began at the end of the 13th century.
This activity also includes a ticket for the Misericordia Museum, which you can visit in your own time after the Cathedral tour if you want. The exhibition space here houses a large collection of pieces related to Florentine history.
Guided tour of the Cathedral, Baptistery, and Museum
By choosing this option, you can complete your visit to the Cathedral of Florence by discovering the entire cathedral complex: the Baptistery and the Museum of the Cathedral of Florence.
In the museum, we will discover some of the original artistic pieces of the Cathedral that have had to be kept indoors to preserve their original conditions. You will also see fascinating models and plans of the Cathedral's cathedral.
In the Baptistery, we will admire the impressive interior decoration of the huge dome, where the golden Byzantine-style mosaics will leave you speechless. You will hear all about the meaning behind these ornate panels and some of the legends surrounding them.
On the first Tuesday of each month, the Cathedral Museum is closed. If your trip is on that day, the museum visit will be replaced by a guided tour of the Cathedral's crypt.
