It is, of course, impossible to 'miss' Florence's Cathedral - Duomo - Brunelleschi's truly incredible dome - Cupola - dominates the skyline and is there, framed, at the end of many a perspective. It's a lot eaier to miss the interior, either through off-putting queues at busy times, or by a lack of information inside the building itself. This brief yet insightful tour is the answer to those issues.
The tour lasts approximately thirty minutes, ten of those spent outside learning about the design and construction of this incredible building - as well as the Piazza del Duomo and the adjacent clock-tower - and twenty minutes inside, an informed look back at the often turbulent history that has played out within the walls.
You'll be met and accompanied by your licensed tour guide and you'll be sure to miss nothing, even when things are crowded, as you'll be listening in via a provided audio system.
Last but not least, you'll be skipping any queues on the day, queues that are often off-puttingly long at busy times. The English language tour runs six days a week (Monday to Saturday) and runs at either 10.30 AM or 12.30 PM; the tour is also available in Spanish on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays (10.30 AM).
