Visit the magnificent cathedral with your knowledgeable guide and learn some interesting facts about this attraction (entrance to the cathedral is not included).
Capped by Filippo Brunelleschi's red-tiled cupola, the construction of the cathedral took almost 150 years and it wasn't consecrated until 1436. The Duomo’s dome is the highlight of the tour and considered the most important architectural achievement of the Renaissance. You will explore the world’s largest dome from inside.
