Florence Cathedral Guided Tour

At the scheduled time, we'll meet up in Florence's beautiful Piazza del Duomo, opposite the Loggia del Bigallo Museum. Then. we'll enter this temple, one of the most important in the world and a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance

Inside, we'll learn all about the origins of this cathedral which was built in honour 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. 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 visiting the entire cathedral complex: the Baptistery and the Museum of the Cathedral of Florence.

With an expert guide accompanying us in the museum, we'll discover some of the original artistic pieces of the Cathedral that have had to be kept indoors to preserve their original conditions. You'll also see fascinating models and plans of the Cathedral's cathedral.

In the Baptistery, we'll admire the impressive interior decoration of the huge dome, where the golden Byzantine-style mosaics will leave you speechless. You'll hear all about the meaning behind these ornate panels and some of the legends surrounding them.
