The doors of the magnificent Florence Cathedral will open for you without waiting in line. Follow an official guide in the exciting discovery of the magnificent artistic treasures kept inside one of the most beautiful and largest cathedrals in the world! Use the app included in the price to discover the history of the amazing Duomo Square and its unique monuments: the Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery.

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 your 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.
