Brunelleschi’s Dome of Florence Cathedral Climb Tour
Climb the top of one of the most famous attractions in Firenze – Brunelleschi’s Dome of Florence Cathedral. This massive dome is impressive not only in appearance and size but in its construction, as there were some major architectural issues at the time.

Florence Cathedral’s Dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi took about 15 years to build and once completed was larger than the ancient Pantheon – or any other dome in Europe at that time.

Discover the ingenious engineering solutions behind the Brunelleschi Dome – revolutionary even by today’s standards. Explore the treasures inside Florence Cathedral, also known as Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Dome of Brunelleschi where you will admire one of the most beautiful stained-glass windows in Italy and works of Renaissance art.

This exclusive, skip-the-line tour allows you to climb the 463 steps to the top of Brunelleschi’s Dome where you’ll witness another masterpiece close up– Zuccari and Vasari’s Last Judgement, an elaborate and colorful fresco on the interior of the Florence Duomo.

And afterwards, enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the most famous monuments in Firenze from the Florence Cathedral Dome terrace.
