Had a chance to climb up Brunelleschi dome back in June (was part of the five historic sites ticket available in the Duomo piazza museum). First of all the climb isn’t trivial but is so worth it. Not just for the 360 degree view at...More
We paid for a tour as it was almost possible to get tickets. So glad we did as our tour guide was so knowledgable and it meant we could stop and take a breath whilst we gained more information about the dome (la cupola)
This time we did not do the climb, but we had done during our first visit to Florence and it was so worth to come up close and personal to one of the most amazing architectural marvels in the world.
It is hard to find...More
Vatican is huge, but Rome is huge too. Duomo is visible from everywhere in Florence. It is a unique technical project for its age (and not only). Be prepared before visiting - read or watch documentary movie how Brunelleschi built it.
It really worth going up there to see how this impressive monument has been done, once you know the huge works it was at the time it was, it is even more impressive. The visit takes you really insdie the dome, where you will see...More
There is just something about the view of Florence from above - it was magical to stand up there and get to see everything! We also had an extremely clear day and could see way past the wineries on the south hills. The climb is...More
The views of the city are amazing from the top of the Dome. Definitely worth it to go all the way up to the top, remember that you have to book online in advance. 18 euro ticket gives you access to everything in the whole...More
We did it with two kids of 5 and 8 years and they did it very well. They were excited about the experience of being over the houses. Views from the top are amazing and see the cupola from this distance is really a good...More
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Yes you can... but to be honest the climb isn't that hard. The final bit is the tightest but compared to some climbs that I've had in the UK the Duomo was a doddle. The view from the top is brilliant. If you do think you can... More
Yes you can... but to be honest the climb isn't that hard. The final bit is the tightest but compared to some climbs that I've had in the UK the Duomo was a doddle. The view from the top is brilliant. If you do think you can face it (and I fully understand those who can't) it really is worth it. My other half couldn't face the climb. If you can't make it then make sure you spend some time in the museum opposite the Cathedral instead.....usually included on the same ticket if you go there within 72 hours.
