Admire the magical Aerial Panorama of the cradle of Renaissance and learn the secrets of the Duomo from a different point of view. An exclusive and never before seen perspective: admire Florence panorama from Duomo's 32 metre high terraces and climb up to the top of the dome! Do not miss the chance to take a closer look at the incredible Brunelleschi "Cupola", a masterpiece of art and architecture that still remains unmatched and whose techniques of building are covered with a veil of mystery. Avoid the queues with our exclusive pass and follow your professional guides inside the immense wonders of the ancient Cathedral of Florence: be impressed by the unique frescoes by Giorgio Vasari and Frederico Zuccari, admire the magical colossal clock by Paolo Uccello and discover the beauty of the marble floor with its intricate patterns.
Take advantage of your guided tour to discover the fascinating crypt, which contains archaeological remains of the ancient cathedral of Santa Reparata. Walking amidst its ruins, admire the floor's fine polychrome mosaic with geometrical decorations. Then climb the Northern terrace of the Cathedral rooftop, a suggestive walk through narrow and open-air corridors that have been closed to the public for centuries. The panorama from up there will take your breath away! This elite tour gives a chance to discover the hidden Duomo terraces: the majority of tourists (as well as Florentines) do not even know they were planned. The guided tour will end in the exclusive circular room (accessible only with our tour) where you have the opportunity to see the old statues which stranded in the façade of the Duomo. In the room you will find restorers at work with their spatulas and chisels. The surprises for you are not over yet: use your 24hr ticket to explore the rest of the Duomo's complex wonders -- the Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistery, the Giotto's Bell Tower and the Opera del Duomo Museum.
