The Duomo in Florence is undoubtedly a fabulous looking building, and having admired it from the outside we decided to get there early and have a look round the inside. Having queued for around an hour an a half, we finally made it into the...More
Climbing to the top of the Duomo is a real treat. You get a fantastic view of Florence in all directions. We went on a lovely afternoon. While climbing you get a wonderful view of the interior frescoes in the dome. I took some nice...More
The Duomo is visible from most streets in central Florence so brave the queues and make a visit. The inside is much more restrained than the outside suggests and much less cluttered than other similar religious buildings in and around the City. Although a ticket...More
This tour should be avoided in high season. It’s a tight circular climb of many steps, but at the same time 2-3 tour groups are allowed inside, which is very claustrophobic; adding warm weather conditions, it becomes a really bad experience. We paid for an...More
We had not been able to book tickets and l8me many others felt sad at leaving Florence having missed this. We saw people queuing and discovered it was for a mass on Saturday at 5pm. It was just so moving and such a privilege to...More
Truly an iconic building in the centre of Florence - a huge green and white confection. Unable to climb the 400+ stairs we queued for about an hour to get in. Staff on duty were surly to the point of rudeness to women who dared...More
When you first see this magnificent structure you feel a sense of urgency to get to it sooner. At first glance it looks like something out of the movie Inception. I took load of pictures but video was better! There are no words except if...More
Despite the 463 steps this is an unforgettable experience. You must make a reservation for a timed entry in order to do this and it is definitely worth it. It is a good idea to first go to the Museo Dell' Opera Del Duomo, just...More
I chose to climb the 463 steps to the top of the Dome and it was the best decision ever!!! This guided tour made you appreciate Brunelleschi’s domed masterpiece even more. Our guide, Martina, was great! She was informative, extremely knowledgeable and had a great...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.

With advance reservations and our Rick Steves audio guide We did four museums in 8 hours. We did a1.5 hour abbreviated version of the Ufizzi while still being able to appreciate what we saw. Then we went to the Bargello. Break for lunch and then we clmbed tne Duomo and the to the Academy to see the David. By the fourth we were over tired. We got lost several times, even with a map, so schedule time between stops to be lost. We found the BEST lunch place while lost. I wish we wrote it down.
