Enjoy a guided tour in discovery of Filippo Brunelleschi's masterful architectural accomplishment – climb up the 463 steps and take a close look at the cupola of the Dome of Florence.
With its octagonal dome - higher and wider than any that had ever been built - with no external buttresses to keep it from spreading and falling under its own weight, the technical difficulties were some of the greatest ever faced – and overcome – in the history of architecture. As well as the admission to the Cathedral, to Brunelleschi’s cupola, the terraces, and the Baptisterium, your tour includes a visit to the Cathedral Museum, where you will see Brunelleschi's models and the tools used to build this wonder of the architectural world.
