Duomo Sky Walk – Florence Heaven

The incredible opportunity to discover Florence Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral) and to see the city from an exclusive and breathtaking point of view: the Duomo terraces (that are normally not reachable) and Brunelleschi's magnificent Dome. Entering with a skip-the-line ticket, with our knowledgeable and passionate guide first focus on Florence Duomo: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, which is also often considered the symbol of the city. Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, the cathedral is the third largest church in the world (after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London) and it was the largest church in Europe when it was completed in the 15th century. The numerous different styles that you’ll encounter in the building bear witness to changing tastes over the long period of time that elapsed between its foundation and its completion. Discover masterpieces such as Paolo Uccello’s clock, Vasari’s frescoes and Bandinelli’s marble choir. Then, begin your ascent to Florence Heaven: the staircase climb, through narrow and openair corridors that have been closed to the public for centuries, will be rewarded by an incomparable view of the city from the Duomo Terraces, on the cathedral rooftop. A sky walk that will feel like floating between the city landscape, with its ancient roofs and towers, and the imposing Dome standing just a few meters above your head. This is an exclusive visit of the Terraces, that are normally not open to the public. Take the most incredible pictures from this 32-metre-high (105 ft) panoramic point right in the middle of the old town. Learn how the massive self standing cathedral dome was built and how it can still firmly dominate Florence skyline after 600 years, withstanding earthquakes and the passage of time. With his astonishingly innovative approach in vaulting the dome space without any scaffolding, Brunelleschi changed the rules of architecture forever, by inventing the way to defy gravity and reach eternity. Then, if you feel like continuing your climb, you can reach the top of Brunelleschi's Cupola (the Dome). Skipping the endless long lines, you will have the opportunity to reach the 91-metre-high (300 ft) panoramic viewpoint for the highest level of this Florentine Heaven and breathtaking views. Included in the price of this tour, clients will have the opportunity to visit by themselves the other locations of the Great Museum of the Cathedral in the next 72 hours, like the Baptistery, the Great Museum of the Duomo and Giotto's Bell Tower. The most comprehensive visit of the Cathedral complex of Florence. The most astonishing journey in the world of Christianity. Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
