Florence Duomo Tour with Brunelleschi’s Cupola Tour Itinerary

The terracotta dome of Florence’s Duomo is perhaps the most spectacular building to admire in the entire city. And on this exclusive tour, you’ll be able to climb the entire structure as you get a look across Florence that’s simply impossible to find anywhere else. Known as Brunelleschi’s Cupola, this 32-metre high edifice features a range of ancient terraces that you’re welcome to explore as you gain a unique perspective on the Duomo’s historic architecture and the surrounding city.

Led by a professional guide, you’ll be able to skip the queues as you enter this celebrated cathedral. Inside, you’ll immediately discover why this is considered one of Florence’s top destinations as you gaze up at Vasari’s and Zuccari’s intense painted frescoes. Next, you’ll head underground as you take a tour of the Crypt of Santa Reparata, a major archaeological site that dates back hundreds of years. Walk beneath the cathedral floors and roam these ancient ruins that include highlights such as Brunelleschi’s tomb and a series of intricate geometric mosaics.

Our Florence Duomo Tour then turns upwards as we climb the 153 stairs to the northern terrace and the cathedral’s impressive rooftop. Despite being closed to the public for centuries, you’ll get a special opportunity to follow the narrow open-air corridors that offer unparalleled panoramic views of the city. A breathtaking way to experience the vast amount of art and history found within these walls, these hidden Duomo terraces are often unknown to Florentines and tourists alike.

Afterward, we’ll make our way to the circular room – another area of the Duomo that’s typically off-limits to the public. Accessible only with our tour, you’ll get to admire the inspired 16th-century statues that once sat upon the facade of the Duomo. As you explore this remarkable space, you can also watch expert restorers return these statues to their former glory. Finally, you’re welcome to climb to the top of the Cupola and soak up the stunning 360-degree views of Florence, as well as the wonderful ‘Last Judgement’ frescoes.

The Duomo is the centerpiece of Florence, and this exclusive tour across its rooftop is the ideal way to experience this centuries-old marvel.
