Why would anyone waste their precious time in Florence waiting in a LONG line to enter the Cathedral when they can not only walk straight in with ZERO wait, but also have the benefit of a guide explaining the history and facts behind this enormous beauty. This tour was PERFECT! We spent just the right amount of time in the outside square as well as the inside. Our guide couldn't have been more professional and helpful and knowledgable. He was even baptized right in the Baptistry we were looking at... you cant get much more "local" than that! This is 110% worth the price!!!!

Guided tour of the Duomo

We met our fantastic guide Maurizio and our group consisting of 6 other people and went around the church, Maurizio knew so much about the construction of the Church, the different architects and the buidings surrounding the church. We ended the tour by being shown around inside the church. The best thing about the tour was Maurizio and his knowledge about the very ecxiting era. Can strongly recommend it :)

Claudio, our guide, was exceptionally well informed about the Florence Cathedral and all it’s various aspects. Later in the day when I met up with my family and we went to the Cathedral Museum, I was able to share a lot of the information I had learned on the tour and I became a ‘mini’ guide for my family. Our tour group was small and thus it was also very easy to ask questions. This was a great experience and I highly recommend it.
