In the company of an expert, get priority admission to the octagonal Baptistery of St. John, best known for its ceiling decorated by golden mosaics and its gleaming bronze doors known as the Gates of Paradise.
Gaze at the relief work on the detailed panels and no doubt be surprised to learn that these are not the original bronze doors – the authentic East Doors are currently on display in the Museum.

Stop At: Opera del Duomo Museum, Piazza del Duomo, 9, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy

Continue in the Duomo Museum, where incredible authentic masterpieces like the gates of the Baptistery, Donatello’s sculptures, and the original dome’s wooden scaffoldings are exhibited.
You could spend hours wandering through the displays, but your guide will cut to the highlights such as the Michelangelo’s Pietà.
You will hear why Michelangelo tried to destroy it and see tell-tale signs of the repaired damage to this world-famous sculpture.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Duomo - Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, Via della Canonica, 1 Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy

In the company of your expert guide, you will learn about the Cathedral and its construction through the centuries and how it came to be the center of Florence's religious life. Brunelleschi Pass will give you access for 72 hours.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Giotto's Bell Tower, Piazza del Duomo, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy

Climb Giotto's bell tower at your own leisure: one of the four principal monuments on the Piazza del Duomo.
