Skip the Line Florence Duomo Brunelleschi's Dome Tour

Majestically dominating the city skyline, the terracotta dome of Florence Duomo is easily the city's most iconic attraction. In peak times, the entrance lines can exceed two hours, so by pre-booking your priority entrance tickets, you'll ensure that you’re spending your time inside this incredible building rather than standing outside in queues.

Bypass the notoriously long lines and immediately access the Brunelleschi Dome with an expert local official Tour Guide leading you to the top of Florence's highest building.

Il Duomo, or the Dome of Florence is a must-see on any visit to the Renaissance Pearl. It's been a fixture of the Florence skyline since 1436 and you can see it from almost anywhere in the city. Join us on this tour to the very peak of Florence as we climb up to the spectacular cupola of the cathedral without the hassle of waiting in lines.

Led by a locally licensed and English-speaking guide, this tour will provide you with comprehensive knowledge of the history of Florence’s Duomo, Italy's best surviving Gothic cathedral.

Your tour will bring you through the two shells that make up the dome where you can truly appreciate the work of Filippo Brunelleschi, the Renaissance architect who designed the dome. Along the way, you'll also enjoy breathtaking frescoes from Renaissance painters and stunning views of the city.

Along the way, your guide will be there to answer all your questions and help with pictures as there will be plenty of photo opportunities!
