Florence Cathedral FAQs

There's so much to see and do at the Duomo – it's smart to do your research. There are lots of different options when it comes to buying Florence Duomo tickets.

The easiest option is to buy a ticket that includes access to the cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome, and the Giotto Bell Tower.

You'll benefit from [reserved entrance[(https://www.tiqets.com/en/florence-attractions-c71854/tickets-for-brunelleschi-dome-premium-entry-p1032002/) and spend more time exploring the Duomo (and less time waiting in line, which could be up to 2 hours!).

Another worthwhile option is to go for a guided tour. That way, as you explore the Florence Duomo, you'll get all the fascinating context and history that you might otherwise miss.

Access to Giotto's Bell Tower isn't always included in your Florence Duomo ticket, so it's good to know your options. Some tickets include the bell tower as standard, while some have it listed as an optional extra, and for other tickets, it's not included at all.

Take a look at the inclusions with each Florence Cathedral ticket and see what option is best for you.

The lines for Florence Cathedral can be long, so you'll want to avoid those where possible. The best way to skip the line for the Duomo is to buy tickets in advance, looking out for inclusions like skip the line, priority access, or reserved entrance.

Florence cathedral tickets are available in person at the Duomo ticket office. However, queues can be long, so it's always best to arrive with your Duomo tickets in hand to avoid wasting time in line.

Tickets overview

  • Also known as the Duomo di Firenze and Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore

  • Brunelleschi's Dome is the largest masonry vault in the world

  • You can climb all the way to the top of the dome with select tickets

  • When you're inside, don't forget to look down – the tiles and mosaics form optical illusions

  • Although the facade appears to be painted, that's not the case; the Duomo was constructed using white, red, and green marble

  • The Florence Cathedral can accommodate up to 30,000 worshippers

While you can enter the Duomo di Firenze at no cost, free access to this giant structure is very limited.

You'll need a ticket if you want to visit the San Giovanni Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower. The same is true if you want to climb Brunelleschi's Dome and the lower terraces.

The entire city of Florence radiates from the heart of the cathedral, making it one of the most popular destinations for tourists year-round, so secure your tickets in advance to ensure you'll see all of this architectural masterpiece.

Florence Cathedral tickets include:

  • The Duomo di Firenze adheres to a strict dress code: knees and shoulders must be covered (applies to all genders)

  • At 114 meters, the top of the Duomo di Firenze will get you the best views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside

  • Check out the equipment used to construct the Duomo at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo

  • The Florence Cathedral is closed on Sundays, and other religious celebrations

  • Underneath the Duomo lies a buried crypt; you can visit the crypt with a combo ticket

  • The cathedral and the museum are wheelchair accessible

  • Food and drink aren't allowed inside, but there's no shortage of cafes and patios around the cathedral

  • Be prepared to wait up to 2 hours in line if you wish to climb the Dome

This was admission to Brunelleschi Dome, but with no guide. We waited for about 15 minutes before we were allowed to enter. I was unable to get the audio tour to work. Amazing sight and climb.

About: Florence Cathedral (Duomo di Firenze)

Since it was opened to the public in 1436, Florence's most famous landmark, the Duomo (or Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore) is a must-see city landmark. In fact, its towering size means you can't miss it.

Filippo Brunelleschi's red-tiled dome is a wonder all on its own, but the architecture is as impressive inside as it is on the outside. Climbing to the top of this stunning cathedral affords great views of the city.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most famous attractions in Italy, known for its iconic diagonal tilt. Constructed over the course of 199 years, the tower originally dates back to 1173 when it was built during an especially prosperous period in Pisa's history. Drawing over one million visitors per year, the tower was off-limits to guests between 1990 and 2001 for safety reasons. Following a decade of corrective reconstruction, it is now once again able to hold visitors for centuries to come.
