    If you go on a tour of the Duomo, pick this one. Made of Tuscany had a great guide who was punctual, really knowledgeable and it was obvious that Christina knew her history. The climb wasn’t as bad as I thought and the view from the Cupola is breathtaking. The Museo dell’Opera del Duomo is fabulous and my regret is that we couldn’t spend more time admiring the masterpieces there. Of course the Battistero was amazing:) Another reason I would recommend this tour is the very courteous and professional customer service from Angela at the agency. She was always quick to respond to any questions I had. You cannot go wrong if you reserve this tour - really good experience.
