You might know it better as the Duomo of Florence, or Florence Cathedral, but once inside the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, your only words will be ‘ooooh’ and ‘ahhhh’!
Take a guided tour of this repository of artistic treasures, with an expert guide by your side, and learn about the priceless art and artifacts within. See the splendid marble choir of Bandinelli, the precious stained-glass windows worked by Donatello, Ghiberti, and Andrea del Castagno, and the singular and mysterious clock by Paolo Uccello.
Take a walk on a marvelous carpet of polychrome marbles and stare up at the immense interior of the Dome and Vasari's glorious frescoes. The dome is the largest ever built in masonry and is arguably the icon of Renaissance architecture. The best part? With direct, dedicated entry, you won't have to wait in line for centuries to see it all either!
