What to expect

Piazza del Duomo in Florence is an extraordinary open-air museum full of chests holding incredible and priceless treasures: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the magnificent Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Opera del Duomo Museum.

Visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore: it was the third-largest church in the world and the largest in Europe at the time of its construction in the fifteenth century! You’ll be enchanted by the sophistication of the polychrome marble of the facade and the majestic Dome that dominates it, designed by Brunelleschi.

Under the Cathedral, you'll see the remains of the ancient Basilica of Santa Reparata, among the largest early Christian complexes of the Tuscia. Admire the famous Gates of Paradise and the precious mosaic of the dome inside the Baptistery of San Giovanni.

You will also be able to enjoy an unforgettable view of the city from the terrace of Giotto's Bell Tower and access the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo to see masterpieces by Michelangelo, Arnolfo di Cambio, Ghiberti, Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Antonio Pollaiolo and Verrocchio.

Enjoy access to the monuments of the complex without wasting even a minute of your time!
