Visit to Florence Cathedral
Wonderful Cathedral! Well worth a visit. Book before you go as the queues can be very large. The dome is wonderful both onside and out

A really great tour, which included additional info before it started making sense of the history & lead up before going inside - magical with the added surprise of a religious event taking place inside so we were very blessed to hear the organ pipes play & see a procession of important clergy within the Cathedral, a rarely experienced coincidence!

I've always been super fascinated by the Medici family so Florence in itself was a dream. The guided tour is quite in demand so unless you book in advance or pay extra outside, you'll be standing in line for hours. The guided tour came in a package but we unfortunately didn't have the time to make the most of it. If you're going there to see the crypts, note that there's a separate line for those. The climb up is 493 steps - quite claustrophobic at times and with quite steep and narrow stairs so you might need to consider any phoebias that you might have before. The seven sins glass ceiling truly is magnificent as is the view from the top. Pay close attention to your tour guide because the history of the family and of Florence is fascinating. My issue was that I was far too unfit to enjoy the climb - but perhaps that was the wake up call that I needed.

You'll spend hours looking at the works of art. Climb to the roof so you can get a good look of the Duomo.
