Tour Description

This tour begins at Giotto’s amazing Bell Tower, almost as tall as the Dome itself!

From the top of the CAMPANILE your tour guide will explain the Opera del Duomo complex. The view is unbelievable from the top.
Next we will descend and go around the Cathedral to explore its beautiful exterior.

We will stop at the BATTISTERO to see its famous golden vault doors and hear the story behind them. This is where Dante Alighieri, one of the most famous Renaissance poets, and many more Renaissance men were baptized.

Next you will head to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo to see the ORIGINAL masterpieces that once stood in the cathedral. Inside the Museum is Michelangelo's Pietà Bandini, Cantories of Donatello, and by Luca della Robbia and the so-called "Facciatone": the Arnolfo’s 14th century life-size facade.

Also the original Ghiberti's Paradise Gate, Donatello's Magdalene and the original decorations of Giotto's.
