Description

When you come to Florence you can't miss its cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, the 4th biggest cathedral in Europe! A long history of its construction, the colours of marble and so many details for its decoration from outside in comparison with the sobriety of its interior design.

We will talk about world famous and less-known facts during our virtual tour. Get ready to see the biggest painted surface in the world: the Dome's frescoes. 3.600 square metres of paintings in front of you! How many persons are painted there? Can we recognize any of them? Are there Medici among them? We will answer all these questions. And that's not all.

Can you imagine that the actual Gregorian calendar was introduced thanks to one astronomical instrument which is inside the cathedral? Do you want to know why the clock of the cathedral has 24 hours and what it shows? And also: how many people can stay inside the cathedral at the same time?


The 2nd part of the tour is dedicated to the Baptistery, built in the 5th century AD. That's a place where Dante Alighieri and many others famous persons were baptized. We will be able to see another masterpiece - 1000 square metres of the byzantine mosaics decorating the ceiling and make other discoveries. Are you ready to do it?

Hope to see you soon!
