Full description

Get a complete and spectacular view of Florence. Join our local guide to make your way to the top of the monumental dome of the Cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore.

Soaring over 300 feet (90 meters) in the air, the dome of Florence Cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo, as the locals call it, dominates the city’s skyline. Completed in 1434, the dome is still one of the largest in the world.

In the 15th century construction of this kind had not been attempted since ancient times; but thanks to the ambitions of a flourishing city and breakthrough Renaissance engineering, the Cathedral dome challenged even the dome of the Pantheon.

The Cathedral’s plans were so ambitious that it seemed nearly impossible to build a dome of these proportions. A goldsmith and sculptor with no prior experience in grand-scale construction, Filippo Brunelleschi, solved the problems. 

Part of Brunelleschi’s solution was the construction of a dome within a dome, a solid brick structure on the inside with a tiled terracotta shell on the outside. Climb to the top of the dome, marvelling at the frescoes within. Step outside for breathtaking views over the entire city.
