Description

Get to know the Piazza del Duomo, located in the heart of the historical 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 path to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, dedicated to the preservation of the dome and other works of art by 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 in 1436 by Filippo Brunelleschi and once known as the largest building in medieval Europe. Once you have got to know this building better, visit the next gem, the Giotto's bell tower, which will impress you with its Florentine-Gothic architecture

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