We had a small group so it wasn't overwhelming or hard to hear our guide. The climb up the dome wasn't difficult since there were places to rest. And the view at the top was amazing.

We had a great tour guide. Laura was interesting and fun, she obviously knows a lot about the Cathedral. 2,5 hours just flew by

Strongly recommend, totally worth the price ! The guide was excellent, we had the cathedral and the top of the duomo to ourselves ! We could fully admire the beauty of it ! The breakfast was in a typical florentino cafe, and was delicious. Even better : the tickets we were given at the end allow fast pass entry to the duomo, the cathedral, and many other monuments / museums for 72h (so you can even come back whenever you want) !

Craving the VIP experience? Your search ends here. Step into the realm of exclusivity with Florence's most prestigious tour. Don't stop at visiting the Cathedral's renowned dome, uncover the hidden gem of its secret terrace!

Dive deep into the heart of the Florence Cathedral, where every corner tells a tale, from the intricate marble choir crafted by Bandinelli to the mesmerizing clock envisioned by Uccello. Your knowledgeable guide will weave the enthralling narratives that surround its very inception, making history come alive.

Embark on a journey that brings you face-to-face with the Cathedral's grandeur. Witness the breathtaking technicolor stained-glass occhi windows and get an up-close encounter with Vasari's legendary Last Judgement frescoes as you ascend Brunelleschi’s Dome by yourself.

But that's not all – the pinnacle of this experience awaits. Behold an unmatched panorama of the city, as you peer down into the very heart of the Cathedral from the concealed treasure of its Secret Terrace. This sprawling 140-meter balcony promises a view like no other, an experience that truly stands above the rest.
