The doors of the magnificent Florence Cathedral will open for you without waiting in line. Follow the official guide in the exciting discovery of the magnificent artistic treasures kept inside one of the most beautiful and largest cathedrals in the world!

Once inside the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, a chest of inestimable artistic treasures, you will be immediately struck by the elegance of the space divided into three naves. Led by an expert guide, you will enjoy the beauty of the splendid marble choir by Bandinelli, the complexity of the precious stained-glass windows worked by Donatello, Ghiberti and Andrea del Castagno and the singular and mysterious clock by Paolo Uccello. You will be also surprised to be able to walk on a marvelous carpet of polychrome marbles. Then, looking up, the immense precious interior of the Dome entirely frescoed by Vasari will appear. Brunelleschi's famous Dome is the largest ever built in masonry and the incomparable icon of Renaissance architecture.

You will also be offered a ticket to the precious Misericordia Museum located in Piazza del Duomo next to the Cathedral, which you can visit at your own pace. Discover a magical place off the beaten track and admire masterpieces by Santi di Tito, Benedetto da Maiano, Sano di Pietro, Bachiacca, Sogliani, G. Battista Naldini and many other important artists.
