Meet your guide at a central meeting point and head over to the bustling square of the Duomo. In peak time, the entrance lines to the Florence Duomo can take over two hours, but you enjoy priority access with your skip-the-line ticket and head straight inside.

Hear the fascinating history behind the dome before beginning the ascent up its 463 steps—expect a steep climb. As you travel up, admire the frescoes from Renaissance artists like Zuccari and Vasari on the two shells of the dome.

Then, arrive at the top and enjoy the reward for all your hard work. Stroll along the cupola’s balcony to soak up 360-degree views of Florence and the Tuscan hills stretched out below. Your guide provides insightful background on Filippo Brunelleschi, the architect behind this Renaissance masterpiece.

Before parting ways with your guide, receive tickets to the museum to continue exploring independently.

Excellent Guide

We got lots of good information that really enhanced the experience of being there. Bring able to skip lines is also a benefit. After this we prefer using a live guide instead of just following an audio.

Awesome experience! Pay attention to where to meet the guide- it’s not at the normal ticket counter but on a side street 5 minutes away

Totally Worth It

Our guide, Cristina, was terrific! Consider yourself lucky if you get to go with her. The tour was even better than expected. If you’re physically able, it’s a do-not-miss opportunity. The steps were rough for me (age 56 with sketchy knees) but there were a few breaks along the way and I did it! One guy had to bail out almost immediately due to claustrophobia. It’s definitely tight, especially as you get higher. A wonderful experience and a highlight of our trip to Florence.

Fat Tire Tours was great and Antonio was a fantastic guide. He made it interesting and had a great grasp on the history. He also made it easier to climb all those stairs by taking breaks. Even this out of shape 59 YO woman could do it!
