Duomo Complex Guided Tour in Florence
The small group Duomo Complex Guided Tour is a visit with a licensed guide to the most important buildings at the heart of Florence’s historic center: the Duomo (Cathedral), Baptistery and the Opera del Duomo Museum.
The Cattedrale of Santa Maria del Fiore is the most famous landmark in the city, designed by Arnolfo di Cambio during the XIII century and finished later on with the stunning Dome by Filippo Brunelleschi.
Your guide will explain the history behind this fascinating building, including the steps taken to built the Dome and to design the Tower. Many important artists have contributed, including di Cambio, Pisano, Ghiberti, Donatello, Robbia, Pollaiuolo, Verrocchio, and Buonarroti, and Michelangelo.
