FLORENCE CATHEDRAL TICKETS: WHERE TO BUY THEM
Entrance to the Florence Cathedral is free but the queue at the entrance is long and there is no time of year or a particular time of the day when you can avoid it.
Access is also possible thanks to the single ticket that offers entry to all the monuments of the Duomo: Baptistery, crypt, Giotto’s Bell Tower, Brunelleschi’s Dome and Museum.
The single ticket is valid for 72 hours from the first use and offers a single access to each monument.
Tickets for the Duomo of Florence and all other connected monuments can be purchased in 4 ways:
1 – at the ticket office of the museum of the Duomo of Florence, which is located behind the Duomo, but the line for the purchase can be long.
2 – online, through the website that allows you to book tickets, choosing the day and time of entry, allowing you to skip the line at the entrance and have easy access to the Duomo –> Florence Dome Climb: Priority Entrance Tour
3 – By booking a guided tour, choosing among the many proposals available and which also allow you to access the Duomo and to use the guide also in the Baptistery and inside the Cathedral. All available offers can be found on the page Duomo: Tickets and Tours
4 – Book the single ticket to see the Duomo, the Bell Tower, the Museum and the Baptistery. However, this ticket does not give access to the Dome and does not give you priority entry to the Cathedral. The advantage, however, is to have a 72-hour pass in hand – Florence Cathedral: Fast Track + Guided Tour of the Dome
