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

Loved this...great to enter via the exit and be given access to areas of the amazing Duomo that others cannot see. Made it feel really special. You also get access to the rest of the Duomo Complex and we climbed the bell tower the next day. Our guide was very knowledgeable - was really able to answer all our questions. This is such a beautiful an amazing church. The Terrace visit was also special - it is just another view of the city from there but without all the crowds and only being accessible via a locked gate you really feel like a VIP . AS a visit to the most iconic site in Florence I would high recommend this.

This was super - a MUST. It was great to be able to walk to the top... AND, know that even though there are a lot of steps, the last 2/3rds are NOT narrow and winding, so you don't get dizzy... stick with it! Breathtaking views.

Really great guide. Full tour of Duomo starting underground in museum and working up to the terrace. You can climb to top of dome after tour is done. Very tight/steep stairs and not for claustrophobics! Cannot imagine in summer...hot enough climbing in Nov. Worth it to climb though!

Perhaps the best tour direction and explanation that one could imagine in the Duomo. Mariana was our guide and she was outstanding. We gained access to parts of the Duomo that would have been off limits to others. What a good value as the Museum was included on a two day admission at one cost. The Museum holds the original doors to the Baptistry. WOW! Rich S.

Best tour I've taken. Guide was super informative and fun. Absolutely loved this - and you can't get to the places they take you without being on a tour! Again, highly recommend, so glad I signed up for this I typically don't do tours, but did to get to areas I couldn't get to on my own.

Wonderful guide and going out into the hidden terraces was very special. It's worth climbing the nearly 500 steps for an incredible view of Florence and being able to do this at your own pace was excellent.
