What To Expect On A Duomo Florence Tour

The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, or the Florence Cathedral, is a monument dedicated to the Virgin of the Flowers. Initially designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, the construction of the Duomo Florence began in 1296. The cathedral took 140 years to complete, and the project was taken over by several different architects such as Giotto di Bondone, Andrea Pisano, and Alberto Arnoldi. However, none of them are as famous as Filippo Brunelleschi, a goldsmith, who won a design competition and was commissioned to design and construct the now world-famous dome of the church.

Architecture

Initially, when Arnolfo di Cambio first began the project in 1296, it followed more of a Gothic style of architecture, with characteristics of Tuscan-style Romanesque architecture, as seen with the inlaid marble paneling. It wasn’t until Filippo Brunelleschi became part of the construction, that the new method and style - an ingenious and artistic combination of Gothic-style architecture and the principles of classic Roman architecture - was implemented and used.

Brunelleschi’s Dome And The Interiors

Filippo Brunelleschi proposed to create a self-supporting dome. His design involved creating two domes - an inner and outer dome, with the inner shell being self-supportive using masonry blocks, brickwork, and embedded chain supports. Ultimately, this dome set the tone for the new style, method, and spirit of scientific and aesthetic inquiry - the key feature of the Renaissance movement. 

The Interiors

The interiors of the cathedral are vast and breathtaking. From beautiful frescoes, paintings, statues, and stained glass designs to ornate doors and complex mosaics, the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore is truly an inspirational work of art, both inside and out.

Giotto's Campanile

Part of the Piazza del Duomo is Giotto di Bondone’s beautiful bell tower, a prime example of Fiorentine Gothic Architecture. Standing atop Giotto's Campanile gives breathtaking views of the city and the Piazza del Duomo.  However, you need to climb 414 steps to savor this delicious view.

Florence Baptistery

One of Florence’s most important religious buildings, the Battistero di San Giovanni, is dedicated to the patron saint – John the Baptist. It is one of the oldest buildings in Italy, constructed in the Tuscan-Romanesque style. The Florence Baptistery is renowned for its artistic east doors created by goldsmith Lorenzo Ghiberti, dubbed by the great Michelangelo as the “Gates of Paradise.”

Crypts 

Between 1965 and 1974, several excavations took place beneath the Cathedral. Remains of Roman settlements, an early Christian pavement, ruins of the former cathedral of Santa Reparata, and traces of augmentations of this church were discovered. Visitors can see Brunelleschi’s Tomb at the opening of the excavation, near the entrance of the cathedral. 

Top Attractions in Florence

Few cities in the world are as culturally vibrant as the birthplace of the Renaissance era, Florence. Spilling with history and art, you'll never run out of things to do in the city of Florence. Here are some of the top landmarks in Florence you should also pay a visit to: 

Uffizi Gallery

The crown jewel in Florence's art environment, the Uffizi Gallery is iconic. It houses one of the most revered collections of art from around the world. Featuring works dating back from the Middle Ages until the Modern Period, the Uffizi boasts a rich tapestry by the likes of Giotto, Caravaggio, Botticelli, and more. You can book Uffizi Gallery tickets separately or as part of your combo tickets.

Accademia Gallery

Ranking only behind the Uffizi Gallery as Florence's top museum, the Accademia Gallery is a treasure trove of unique artwork. Of all the pieces, it is home to perhaps one of the most remarkable sculptures in the world – David by Michelangelo; the Accademia draws in millions each year that desire to witness this 17-foot tall masterpiece. You can book Accademia Gallery tickets separately or as part of your combo tickets.

Boboli Gardens

Several beautiful parks around Europe have likely sought inspiration from the bewitching Boboli Gardens. Originally designed for Florence's Medici family, it today spreads across 45,000 sq.m. space and stands out as a one-of-a-kind open-air museum featuring lush greenery, art, sculptures,  and fountains. Book Boboli Gardens tickets to witness the breathtaking garden. 

Palazzo Pitti

That Florence's royal family desired opulence is widely known – and the impressive Palazzo Pitti oozes opulence. The largest museum complex in the city, Palazzo Pitti, was once the residence of banker Luca Pitti and later sold to the Medici, which explains the massive collection of art and luxury items here.
