Explore Florence Cathedral, its terraces and study the secrets behind its design! This exclusive tour begins with an evocative introduction movie, allowing you to go back over the history of Florence, the “Cradle of Renaissance”, thanks to the exclusive images showing how the city and its monuments have grown through the centuries. Avoiding the line, you will enter then, accompanied by a licensed English speaking guide, inside Santa Maria del Fiore, where you will discover the superb works of art preserved there, as Paolo Uccello’s clock, Vasari’s frescos and Bandinelli’s marble choir.
Then, take in the surreal panoramic views from multiple viewpoints on the terraces. This exclusive perspective is a sight not everyone gets! Atop the terraces, you’ll be able to get a closer look of the ‘Cupola’, the masterpiece of Brunelleschi that remains unmatched in perfection. Take in the unparalleled views of the Italian countryside from the Northern Terrace - a site recently opened to the public.
At the end of your visit, a few steps from the Cathedral square, you will be offered a delicious taste of Chianti wine and tidbits of cheese with balsamic vinegar.
