Your experience


  • Experience the Cathedral Square of Florence, the city's most famous landmark
  • Visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Duomo Opera Museum
  • Benefit from a tour in a small group through the cathedral complex


Get to know Piazza del Duomo, located in the heart of the historic centre of Florence. Not for nothing is it one of the most visited places in the city. From the beginning of your meeting, your guide will give you an insight into the history of this wonderful work of art.

First you will discover the way to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, dedicated to the preservation of the dome and other works of art of great masters such as Michelangelo, Donatello, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Luca Della Robbia, Arnolfo di Cambio.

Take a stroll through the piazza and take a look at the red dome, completed by Filippo Brunelleschi in 1436, once known as the largest building in medieval Europe. After getting to know this building, you will visit Giotto's next gem, the bell tower, which will impress you with its Florentine-Gothic architecture.

Then your guide will guide you through the exterior of the Loggia del Bigallo, a late Gothic building in Florence. Through the "Gates of Paradise" you enter the Baptistery of St. John, located opposite the Cathedral Church. The tour concludes with an introduction to the technical and artistic aspects of architecture.
