  • Climb the 463 steps to the top of the Duomo and be rewarded with staggering city views from the top
  • See Giorgio Vasari's frescoes of the Last Judgment (1572-1579) other enchanting details by Andrea del Verrocchio installed in 1466
  • Your ticket gets you 72 hours of access to other parts of the Duomo Complex

Mesmerizing all who observe it from afar, il Duomo is one of Florence's greatest architectural treasures. Take a deep breath, climb the 463 steps to the top and see this 13th and 14th-century triumph up close - from the inside! Amazing frescoes and staggering city views await you.

In Florence, good things come to those who don't wait for elevators that aren't there.

The only way to see the glorious insides of the Duomo's dome up close is to take the 463 steps, but it's well worth the effort. The city views are to die for!

See the conical roof, designed by Brunelleschi and built after his death in 1446. Witness Giorgio Vasari's frescoes of the Last Judgment (1572-1579), and the gilt copper sphere and cross that was installed way back in 1466.

Once you've activated your ticket, you're free to visit other parts of the Duomo Complex within 72 hours.

Time, earthquakes, even bolts of lightning can't bring this masterpiece down, but get there early to beat the crowds.

Insider tip

The Duomo's octagonal dome was erected between 1418 and 1434 - without the use of scaffolding!

Very easy to use, and even helped us with some other bookings in person when we arrived to pick up our tickets! Joey was especially helpful!

Not the easiest walk up but stunningly gorgeous. Worth it all.

Everything went well. We managed to save coupe hours and experienced Florence in one day. Climbing two Towers May be a bit exhausting and problematic for people with claustophobia.

Well organised ticket pick up and visit. Once inside the Cathedral it was onwards and upwards to an amazing vista.

Overall good and satisfactory. Of course, one still has to queue for a moment, but the queue is shorter and faster than the regular one.
