This was an excellent tour. The outside of this building is amazing--much more so than the inside, but what is truly unbelievable is the interior of the dome, which you can study from up close. As you ascend the steps, you will get the opportunity to see it from different vantage points. You will also get to view the terrace, which is stunning. But then when you climb to the very top, the view of Florence is a masterpiece in itself. What amazed me was how each of the stairways were built, so many years ago. How did they do this without the aid of modern equipment and do it so perfectly? Do not miss this tour-- it is well worth the climb.
Highly organised and efficient. We received VIP treatment in a small group which was amazing. The knowledge of our guide, Martina was second to none. She was passionate about the facts and very interesting to listen to. All in all a fabulous experience which we would highly recommend.
Worth the money! You really need to get Skip the line ticket to visit the Dome as the line is extremely long regardless of weather. It was pouring the day we went and the line was still long. The highlight of the tour is that you get to visit a terrace that is exclusive to this travel agency. They have a booth next to the Apple store in the Republicca Square, I saw they posted 20-25 off some of their tours so go check out the last minute discount they offer.
We had a great experience on this tour. The view of the city from the top is incredible. And this tour includes the terrace of the cathedral which allows you to step away from the crowds momentarily and quietly take it all in! Our guide Valentina was fantastic!
We really enjoyed our Duomo Sky Walk, although I had great trepidation about booking this particular tour. We are in our 60's and weren't sure if we could make it up all the way. My husband and I were extremely motivated and we wanted very much to have the experience and to see the views. Our guide was excellent funny, very knowledgeable and full of personality. So sorry that I don't remember her name.
We explained that we weren't sure we could make it the entire way up the 450 steps and were prepared to go only to the terraces. At one point as I was ascending the winding staircase I started to freak out because I couldn't tell how much more there was to go, but she encouraged me by saying we were almost there, and we were. The views were great and we were very proud of ourselves. We did not go entirely up to the top, but the terrace level was good for me.
Our guide has so much information about the history and architecture of the Duomo and of Florence. It was a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it and then take yourself out for a great lunch!
Amazing tour. We cannot decide what we liked the most, the spectacular views, the gorgeous villages, the lunch the limonchello refreshment at the top of the track or the jump in the azure waters at Monterosso! Its full and rich and we only wish we had more time to take more photos!
Both, Gloria and Marcial, were very warm but professional and amazing in sharing their great local knowledge with us. TEN PLUS! Thank you guys!
