The journey to the top of Brunelleschi’s cupola begins with 463 steps. Follow the narrow staircase all the way to the top. Space on the way up and down is limited, so the climb requires a reservation. When you book this tour, we take care of your reservation to climb the Duomo along with priority access that lets you jump the lengthy queue.

Stunning views of Florence from the top of the Duomo

Your guide pauses at different stages as you make your way up to the top. They share the history of the construction of the complex and stories of the sculptures and artworks hidden within. Your guided tour culminates on the top of the Duomo with stunning views of Florence.

Once your tour up the Duomo concludes, you’re welcome to take as much time as you like, with your newly acquired knowledge, to explore the rest of the complex. If there is too much to dive into all in one day, you’re able to stretch your visit across two days. Once you’ve validated your ticket, you’re free to use it over a 48-hour period.
