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.

Amazing! We were truly given the VIP experience. We were given access to areas no one else could enter. The view from the terrace is beautiful. A must do. I highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the Duomo Complex. The tour was very informative and allowed us to explore many areas of this spectacular building that some of the other tours don't include. We got to experience the exterior terrace, the underground of the original church, as well as a climb to the top of the Dome where we were able to take in a gorgeous panoramic view of all of Florence. The entry ticket also got you into the Baptistery, a climb up the Bell Tower and entry into the Duomo Museum after the main tour the ticket is good for 48 hours. We would highly recommend this tour, but be prepared for climbing a lot of steps 450 to be exact. The close proximity to the frescoes under the Dome were breathtaking.

Overwhelmingly beautiful and without our well spoken, well versed guide we would have missed so many details and so many little facts. The tour was wonderful!

The Duomo tour was excellent, very insightful and helpful guide, and the access you get is great. Nice to see the regular people jealous of the access you get.

Really great tour, the guide was excellent and showed us the many beautiful pieces of artwork, stained glass, and history of the Duomo as well as the baptistry. The key part of the tour was getting access to the steps to walk up to the top of the Duomo. The Duomo in Milan has beautiful spires that make it unique compared to other similar structures in Italy. It was great to get a view of Milan from on top of the Duomo, it is a really must see in Milan

Excellent Tour - Being able to go out on the Terrace was well worth the price of the ticket. Then add in you are getting a ticket for 48 Hours to rest of Duomo Complex. GREAT addition to your tour!

A must do when in Rome! Our beautiful guide Sarah was so passionate and enthusiastic about this amazing building and its history, we were able to go into areas that were closed to the general public and climbing into the Dome was quite surreal. The views from the top were Amazing. Definitely a must!

You will need a head for heights and stamina for this one but would not have missed it. Very informative and interesting to see the ruins below the Duomo of the previous church that stood there.
Our trip included a trip to the top of the dome over 300 steps if you wished but you can go to the first terrace which is just over 100 steps which was enough for us and the view from here over Florence will not disappoint.

Great tour, really knowledgeable guide. We had access to areas other people didn't and skipped the lines.The hike to the top terrace inside the dome was quite an adventure, the views from the top on the outside are amazing.
