Traveler Tips

The Duomo in Florence stands alone and can be enjoyed without a tour guide.
It was not a very long tour but it was a great way to get into the Duomo faster and learn about the church's history and construction.
Even if you are tired of Churches and Cathedrals, you must visit the Duomo.

Not worth it
Nancy_B, Sep 2023
Nothing to share This was a waste of good time. Waiting and waiting Don’t have a little more to share
Fantastic Guide
Ian_G, Sep 2023
The guide spoke clearly and had a great sense of humor! Most enjoyable and educational too! The headphones and unit were very good so there were no technical issues either.
Don’t expect customer service to come through for you
Josh_R, Sep 2023
We were confused on where to meet our guide. Viator was no help, responding hours later. I tried to see if we could try the same tour the next day and again, they were no help at all. Unfortunate to have problems like this on our honeymoon but it is what it is.

Paula was great, very knowledgeable. Express is the only way to go of you don't want to wait for a long time

Our guide was excellent and gave an informative presentation. Whatever you do, take the SKIP The Line Tour and avoid standing in line with hundreds of others tourists. We walked right into the Duomo without waiting!
Amazing Tour
Regina_K, Sep 2023
The tour operators are very efficient in getting group organized and into the cathedral. Our tour guide was lovely and super informative! We moved into the Cathedral quickly..skip the line…had great locations to stand as the guide was explaining all aspects..interesting & well worth the reservation! Outside of cathedral is spectacular to view too!
Great quick trip!
Jessica_C, Sep 2023
We chose this express tour since we weren’t interested in the religious aspects of this spot. My husband really just wanted to see the inside of the dome and we weren’t interested in climbing it. This tour was the perfect way to see the dome while getting some explanations about artifacts like the clock. We loved being able to skip the line for this.
Worth it
Guillermo_P, Sep 2023
The ticket was worther as the line was over three blocks. The guide was not too good. She was in a hurry and did not gove us the tickets to go to the museum on the basement
Good tour. A little overpriced.
donna_c, Sep 2023
It was a good tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Duomo. It was a short 30 min tour, maybe overpriced somewhat.
Misleading Tour Title with Duomo in it - There is no dome access
Seth_C, Sep 2023
The Tour on Viator has "Duomo" in the name but then doesn't have dome access. Then they refused to give a refund when I reached out the day before explaining that the title was misleading and I wanted a refund before the tour the next day.
Highly recommended.
Gordon_W, Sep 2023
Excellent tour. We were able to go straight in with no need to wait in the incredibly long queue. The guide clearly knew her stuff and was informative and entertaining. It was also a good length (sometimes tours can go on far too long and you retain none of the information- this was perfect for us). Highly recommended.
Great experience!
Martina_R, Sep 2023
Great experience! Our guided tour of the duomo was fabulous! Our guide was both knowledgeable and engaging, and gave us a great background to understand what we were looking at. Would absolutely recommend!
Good overview of the history of the Duomo
DimiB, Sep 2023
Seeing the amazing detail inside the Duomo and learning about the history and it’s artists. Our guide shared an in-depth knowledge. Good clear communication.
The guide made the tour very informative and enjoyable
Dilip_D, Sep 2023
The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Made the short tour very informative . I would recommend this tour of Duomo without any reservations.
Skipping the line makes your time very efficient.
Alfonso_G, Sep 2023
Very good explanations, the guide knows the location very well. Skipping the line makes your time very efficient. Maybe a bit short and ticket doesn't include catacombs visit.
Duomo in Florence
Jeff_S, Sep 2023
Our guide at the Duomo provided an excellent background on the structure itself and the history and religious meaning inside. The cost to skip the line, which saved us at least 45 minutes, was well worth it.
Great express tour
Josh_J, Sep 2023
Overall a great tour! About the right length of time, quick but informative and very interesting. 5*
Vatican best
Sandi_V, Sep 2023
Loved our tour guide, she grew up as a child haunting the Vatican museums and grounds, she shared her passion for the beauty and history with us. Her stories and insights made the whole experience come alive for us. Thank you❤️❤️❤️
Great Tour
Anthony_B, Sep 2023
The experience was everything we wanted and more. The skip the line was worth the money spent. Thanks to the tour company.
Short on time this is the one to take
Robert_H, Sep 2023
We were short on time so this fit what we needed. Got to see inside the Duomo and learned some stuff a long the way.
