The history of the Duomo monument is ancient and very peculiar. It started in 1418 when a contest to design the Duomo was announced, with a prize of 200 gold florins and eternal fame for the winner. The leading architects of that age came to Florence and presented their ideas.

Filippo Brunelleschi was the winner and Lorenzo Ghiberti was the co-uperintendent. The project had been considered absurd by many engineers, and the realization was indeed hard and with many obstacles, but not impossible.

On March 25, 1436, for the Feast of the Annunciation, Pope Eugenius IV and a group of cardinals and bishops consecrated the finished Cathedral. Since then the Dome (Duomo) is a symbol of the Florentine Renaissance.

Your guide will lead you on the way up to the Dome, explaining in detail the history and the legends of the story of the Dome, as well as the frescoes that make it truly inimitable.

Whats Included?

  • Reserved ticket to enter the Dome
  • 1-hour and 15-minute tour with a licensed Tour Leader
  • Accessibility to the other Monuments in 72 hours (Cathedral, Tower, Museum and Baptistery) by your own
