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 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.

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:

  • Guided tours of the Cathedral, the Duomo, baptistery, and the adjacent tower

  • A professional guide to answer all of your questions and point out details overlooked by most visitors

  • Combine admission fees to other Florence attractions, like the Uffizi Gallery and Galleria dell'Accademia

  • 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

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

  • Underneath the Duomo lies a buried crypt

  • 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

Your ticket is valid for all the attractions that are at the cathedral. We nearly walked away after climbing the tower, but after asking, realised that we could go into everything else as well!

This was part of our Florence Pass. Loved every moment of this tour. Would highly recommend the skip the line, as it really does save a lot of time when trying to fit in as much as you can in a day!

We were not sure what to expect, but this was the way to go!!! Breathtaking experience and well worth the climb of over 400 steps!
The panoramic views were one of a kind!

About: Florence Cathedral – The Duomo

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.
