What you'll do

Looking for something special? In need of a bit of phisical activity after a big plate of pasta? Do not waste your time and join our tour for a truly incredible experience...463 steps up and down are a lot but the inside of the dome and the breathtaking view over Florence are worth the climb. Bored of the usual tour? Come and listen to our guide while explaining legends and stories behind Brunelleschi, the architect and the clockmaker. Dive into a fantastic art journey and in the end, climb up to the top and let yourself be lulled by the wind while enjoing Florence from the above...obviously don't forget to take lots of pictures!!!

Simone

For about 20 years I have been working as a tour guide in Florence and I have to say this is the best job in the world. Foreign languages and history of art have always been my passion, Florence and Tuscany my pride. That's why a few years ago I opened my own personal Tour Operator, ACCORD Italy Smart Tours & Experiences, specialized in Incoming services. Since then I realized that sharing my love for my hometown and my region with visitors from all over the world is a real vocation. Now the work is huge and since I'm more and more busy designing new tours and experiences for my guests, I often ask for collaboration with good colleagues who can welcome you in my place. It is important to know that they are all professionals and above all they share with me the same passion and enthusiasm for my land.

Where you'll be

Our guide will wait for you right in front of Porta della Mandorla, the Dome door. After a brief explanation of the Duomo, the climb begins. Be prepared to walk through a narrow passage until you reach the first stop where the guide will explain you the statues and the construction of the building. Once you reach the top, look up and let your eyes admire the spectacular decoration. Then, walk outside and appreciate the best 360° view of the city.
