What to expect

Piazza del Duomo in Florence is an extraordinary open-air museum, full of chests holding incredible and priceless treasures: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the magnificent Brunelleschi's Dome (Cupola), Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Opera del Duomo Museum.

Visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the third-largest church in the world and the largest in Europe at the time of its construction in the fifteenth century. You’ll be enchanted by the sophistication of the polychrome marble of the facade and by the majesty of the Dome that dominates it, designed by Brunelleschi.

Under the Cathedral, you'll see the remains of the ancient Basilica of Santa Reparata, among the largest early Christian complexes of the Tuscia. Inside the Baptistery of San Giovanni, your attention will be captured by the dome's precious mosaic, and by the famous Gates of Paradise.

Admire masterpieces by Michelangelo, Arnolfo di Cambio, Ghiberti, Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Antonio Pollaiolo and Verrocchio in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. Unmissable, to end with a bang, is the city view from the terrace of Giotto's Bell Tower.

With just one pass, you will have access to all the monuments of the Grande Museo del Duomo and won't waste even a minute of your time.

With the priority entrance to the Dome with Musement assistance, you'll be offered a brief introduction to the Duomo Complex at the entrance by a Musement representative.

Choose the guided tour option and deepen your knowledge of the Cupola by Brunelleschi with the insights of a professional guide.

Access to the Cathedral is free and not bookable. Book the priority entrance to the Dome and Cathedral to take advantage of the fast-track entrance to the Cathedral and avoid up to 2 hours waiting in line.

Choose among four ticket options the one that best suits you:

  • Entrance ticket to the Duomo Complex
  • Priority entrance to the Dome (with Musement assistance)
  • Priority entrance to the Dome with guided visit
  • Priority entrance to the Dome and Cathedral (with Musement assistance)
