Admire the beautiful golden vault of the Baptistery and the original Gates of Paradise, see superb Renaissance works of art in the Opera del Duomo Museum, climb up the world-famous Dome and marvel at the sight of the entire Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore from above!

Spend two hours visiting the beautiful monuments of the Florence Cathedral complex with an experienced guide, who will begin from the Baptistery and its famous golden vault decorated with Byzantine mosaics. Continue on to the Opera del Duomo Museum and see the original Gates of Paradise, the Magdalene by Donatello, the Pietà by Michelangelo, and many other Renaissance masterpieces.

Finally, get to the top of Brunelleschi's Dome to discover the mystery of this revolutionary 16th-century construction frescoed with wonderful paintings such as the famous Universal Judgment by Vasari. From the top of the Dome, you'll be introduced to the artistic beauties of the Cathedral, which you'll be able to admire from a privileged place away from the crowds below.
