This was very nice to see all of Florence once you made it up to the top through the long narrow staircase. Be prepared to climb up because it is a hike!
This was the best of the five tours I booked through Viator! Our guide Christina was very knowledeable about the Duomo and the surrounding area. She was good at making sure that all members of the tour were accounted for. We were not able to complete the entire climb to the Dome, but she gave us excellent instructions on where to meet her to complete the tour. Unfortunately, it started raining, so we didn't go back to complete it-but that wasn't the tour operator's fault. I would highly recommend this tour!

Amazing! A MUST if you're visiting Florence and can withstand a 450 step climb. The view from the top is 1000 worth it. We enjoyed the company tour itself, and loved our tour guide, Benedetta. She truly loves Florence and conveys that with her excitement and wonderful humor. The gelato at the end of this tour was also very refreshing!
Valentina was an excellent guide. It was a fairly small group and she got to know us all by name.
She was very knowledgeable and had some great insights into the art, history and architecture of the Duomo.
This tour gives you access through a back door - absolutely no lines. Priority security check just for the small group and access to parts of the Duomo that are not usually visited by tourists.
The climb to the top is nearly 500 steps - but is split into 3 parts...so not to extreme but still difficult if you are a little unfit.
The ticket also gives you access to other parts of the Duomo Baptistry and Belltower which can be used for 48 hours from the beginning of the tour.
I would strongly recommend this tour if you are interested in knowing some of finer details of the Duomo without having to study.

We loved this tour, and were shown unexpected exclusives. Antonio was an expert and delightful guide. Highly Recommended.
Fantastic.....limited space here to review fully...see my Trip Advisor review to do it justice!
No line plenty of time
Great tour with a great guide. The climb to the top is worth it and if you can physically do it, you should. We had a couple members of our group that couldn't make it all the way up and I really think they missed out.
This tour is not for the faint of heart. You need to be ready for a good climb and not be afraid of heights. Very fun and the best views of Florence. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny so made for a great day. We had someone in our party that did not climb to the top but was able to have a great tour all the same.
We had a wonderful guide who willingly snapped pictures of everyone as we climbed our way to the top. She was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour of the Duomo and the adjacent chapel were impressive to say the least. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to refresh with a gelato at the conclusion of the trip! We also were pleasantly surprised that our ticket allowed us to return for 2 days -- we took advantage of this by going to the museum. Regrettably, we did not have enough time to visit the bell tower.
