How to book a tour of Florence Cathedral, Giotto's bell tower, baptistery and museum?
The cathedral complex IS the heart of Florence, Brunelleschi's dome beckoning you inwards, the visitor inevitably gravitating towards this amazing collection of buildings and their museum. This guided tour, lasting roughly two and a half hours, will give you a privileged insight into the history and the majesty of this incredible concentration of wonders. Group size will never be more than 15 people, all tours are in English, include all entrance tickets, and start at 2.00 PM.
Simply select the ideal date for your visit by clicking on the calendar to the left*.
Once you've selected a date on the calendar we'll show you the ticket options that are available, one or more of which may be of interest to you.
A fully guided tour of the Duomo, the museum, the Baptistery and the Campanile, Giotto's bell-tower.
The tour covers: the Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistery), the Duomo di Firenze (Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore), both the interior and exterior, the Museo del Duomo, (cathedral museum) and a climbing of the Campanile (Giotto's bell tower). You'll view the so called 'Gates of Paradise' by Ghiberti, and enjoy amazing views of the cathedral dome - cupola - from the top of the bell tower.
You'll also be given a cumulative ticket that gives entrance to all of the above as well as Brunelleschi's dome (cupola) and is valid for 24 hours from first use. This is important because it will give you independent access to the cupola, not itself included as part of the tour. So, tour plus ticket!
The tour runs all year round on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Please note that on the first Saturday of the month the interior of the Baptistery is closed to visitors. Children under the age of eight may not take part in this tour, and those between the ages of 8 and 12 receive slightly discounted tickets. If the group numbers more than 8 people then you'll be listening to your guide over provided ear sets.
Please also note that since the tour includes a visit to religious buildings there is a strict dress code - please do not wear shorts, sleeveless tee-shirts or other inappropriate clothing or you may be denied entry.
