Visit the Florence Duomo in 2021

Iconic in every manner, Santa Maria del Fiore -- commonly known as the Florence Duomo -- encompasses Italian Renaissance within one, towering structure. Best represented by its magnificent red dome, the Duomo was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi back in 1436 and dedicated to Saint Mary (Virgin of the Flowers).  

Its architecture and design is intriguing, to say the least; the first thing that greets your sight is the captivating red, green and white marble paneling firmly holding up the renowned Dome. It took an army of blacksmiths, masons, carpenters and stone cutters to complete the construction of the Florence Duomo. 

The next time you’re looking to soak in some Renaissance-era art and culture, go ahead and buy a Florence Duomo ticket!

The Dome, also known as the Cupola, is the most identifiable part of this landmark -- and a must-visit! Not all Florence Duomo tickets include a Cupola climb. It takes about 463 steps to climb up to the top, which gives you a close, personal view of Brunelleschi’s work, including The Last Judgement. While a ticket with Cupola might be priced higher than a regular ticket, the panoramic view of Florence from the top is absolutely worth it.
