Skip-the-Line Florence Duomo with Brunelleschi's Dome Climb
US$86.80
Overview
Florence’s world-renowned landmarks attract lines that reflect their global popularity. Save yourself hours of waiting with a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiori (Florence Duomo), which includes access to the top of the dome—an experience that’s not usually open to the public. A guided tour of the Baptistery reveals details you may otherwise have missed and a gelato-tasting session makes this tour even sweeter.
What to Expect

Your experience begins at a central Florence location, where you’ll greet your guide and sail past the long lines that often form outside of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiori. Head straight inside, as your guide informs you about the dome’s history.

Begin your 463-step ascent to the top of the dome, admiring frescoes from Renaissance artists as you go. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic city views that stretch as far as the Tuscan hills.

Following your descent, take a trip to the ornate Baptistery and enjoy a gelato tasting. You’ll then have the choice to remain and continue exploring the cathedral independently.

Hi Emmah! I am glad to know that you appreciated our skip-the-line service. With our Duomo tour you skip the often two-hour-long line and access directly to the Cathedral and immediately after you are on the top of Brunelleschi's Dome! The view from the top...More

I'm sure that the minimum age is 12 years....you can always contact the tour company to check but it isn't a trip for a toddler.
