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) The...More

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

A taxing climb, especially in the heat, don’t bottle out at the first level, go right to the top. The views are a fantastic reward. Teen daughters lived this one.

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

One of my absolute highlights! The view is stunning and I enjoyed every second of it! Not for people with fear of heights though!

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

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

One line for all because everyone who has tickets to go up the tower is given a specific time to enter. This is different to the cathedral where no entry time is given.

Sort of. A queue forms before the time of people all of whom have timed tickets. At the allotted time the gate opens.
