Very much worth it. We had a very knowledgeable guide and exceptional views of the frescoes under the dome otherwise cordoned of. Of course the walk on the rooftop is outstanding.

This Duomo is the site to see when visiting Florence and if you do not have a STL ticket you will be waiting for hours to get inside. I was surprised that their are archeological remains of the previous Basilica under the current one and this booking includes entrance into this lower level. It is incredible to see this newly opened 2014 area that dates back to the 1st century and includes an area where the original altar of the 1st cathedral was built. The current cathedral is much plainer inside than you will be use to seeing if you have been inside the cathedrals and basilicas in Rome, but that is what makes it standout from the others. This tour also offered entrance up to the terraces that run along the one side of the cathedral that gives you a wonderful view of the northeast side of Florence. The stairwell to this level is stable and easy to navigate. This ticket also included the stairwell to the top of the Cupola which was sold out for the public for that day- but I opted out of this as we were running close to closing time at Santa Croce and we wanted to visit there. If you have the leg strength and stamina the pictures I've seen online make it well worth the trek since it will give you a 360 degree view of Florence and it's highest peak. Must do in Florence!!

This tour was awesome! You get to go to areas inside the ropes that the regular tours dont. The terrace walk was fantastic! Worth the extra money.

This was a wonderful tour with many great insights shared by our guid Paulo. We enjoyed the VIP access to the terrace and skip the line was worth it in February. The tour takes you around the exterior of the complex to learn about all the various symbols into the basement to learn more about the various buildings contrastive onsite then into the chapel and finally up to the hidden terrace. The tour concludes at this level so you are 1/2 way to the cupola and your ticket allows you to continue up with no wait in line. Recommend this tour
