Insider Tips on Visiting Duomo Florence Cathedral

  • The Duomo being a house of worship, you are required to wear respectful clothing.
  • For the vantage viewpoint, climb up the cupola [463 steps]. Steel yourself because it is worth it, the ceiling, the vistas of the city and everything else in between.
  • The climb to the Dome is not suitable for small children due to the narrow and steep nature of the stairs.
  • Each part of the Duomo has different operating hours and these may change on different days of the year, so check the official website before your visit.
  • Entry to the Florence Cathedral is free, however, there is a small fee to see the crypt, the bell tower and the dome itself. In order to indulge in a quick tour of these 3 parts, buying tickets online is recommended to avoid queues.
  • A visit to the Duomo Museum is recommended to appreciate the origins and development of the Duomo. Don't miss the "Doors of Paradise" housed here.
  • Entry to the Duomo is complimentary with the Firenze Card.
  • For a relaxed and sedate experience of the Duomo, keep aside 2 hours ( including the climb up and down the cupola).
  • The Duomo Museum remains closed on the first Tuesday of each month.
  • The Duomo Florence has free wifi within its complex.
