What to Expect
Your experience begins at a central Florence location, where you greet your guide and sail past the long lines that often form outside of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiori. Head straight inside, as your guide informs you about the dome’s history. Begin your 463-step ascent to the top of the dome, admiring frescoes from Renaissance artists as you go. At the top, you are rewarded with panoramic city views that stretch as far as the Tuscan hills. You then have the choice to remain and continue exploring the cathedral independently.
