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 3 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 – booking a guided tour, which will allow you to discover not only the Duomo of Florence but also the Baptistery and the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo –> Florence Duomo Guided.
3 – booking Brunelleschi’s Dome Tickets.
The ticket gives access to the Dome and does not provide priority entrance to the Duomo, but offers the advantage of seeing the interior of the Duomo and its frescoes from a different point of view.
Check now the availability of tickets to see the Dome.
HOW TO GET TO THE FLORENCE CATHEDRAL
On foot: The Duomo of Florence is located in Piazza Duomo, in the historic center of the city. It will not be difficult to reach it and it will be enough to look up and identify the famous Brunelleschi’s Dome.
By train: The Santa Maria Novella station is just a few minutes walk from Piazza Duomo.
The frescoes of the Dome of Florence Cathedral, visible only if you enter the Duomo, are one of the must-see masterpieces, but there are many other works of art in Florence that you can’t miss. From Botticelli to Michelangelo, Masaccio to Caravaggio, there are many treasures to see.
If you don’t know where to start, I suggest you read the post where I made a list of the museums in Florence that you should see, you could start with one of them.
Florence is a treasure trove of art treasures to discover. Some of these treasures and places are not included in the normal tourist circuits, so they are almost unknown.
