Such an incredible Museum my husband and I really enjoyed! So thankful we didn’t miss this one! When the line for the Cathedral was incredibly long first thing in the morning and it wasn’t even open yet, we popped over to the Museum which was...More
Millions of euros has been very well invested in this magnificent presentation of Duomo-related artefacts. A simplified reproduction of the Duomo frontage to present the original sculptures is perhaps the centrepiece but other features abound. There is an arcade of original models made when decisions...More
This was always a special museum, but as time goes by stopping here becomes more and more important. More and more of original sculpture that was once outside is now in this museum.
The museum has been redone, and the intelligence and concern for us,...More
Well worth taking the time to enjoy the history and making of the Duomo. The inclusion of the copy of the full-size original facade with many of the rescued statues is quite breathtaking.
PS the cafe is an excellent place for a quick coffee etc...More
This was included in a 5 Places visit around the Duomo from Florence museums website. I wouldn't have known to go otherwise. Light and airy beautiful building. Full of treasures from the church. Good information, friendly staff and lots of seats. Not many toilets for...More
This museum is included in the ticket price for Duomo,Cathedral and the Bell Tower.
We did not expect a lot from this place and only went in to cool ourselves from the summer sun. But we were pleasantly surprised.
This place is huge and they...More
We went in Florence Cathedral first- and I suppose my expetations were too high having been to St Peters in Rome earlier. The outside of this church is just spectacular, but that is where it ended for me. However, the Museum is compelling if for...More
Great museum, and entry ticket includes the Bell Tower, the Baptistry, the crypt and the dome. Paying directly on the museum website is much cheaper than going through a tour operator or ticket booking site and allows you to book the Dome time slot, just...More
This museum is beautifully constructed to give the visitor a powerful sense of the history of the cathedral and how and why it was built. I strongly recommend that you visit before you go inside the cathedral itself and definitely before you climb the cupola....More
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
