Guided Tour of Duomo Complex and its Restoration Workshop

by Caf Tour & Travel Duration 1h 35m+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$96

Explore one of the most intimate and fascinating locations of the Duomo complex, where time seems to have stopped centuries ago. With your guide, visit a restoration workshop where some of the greatest Renaissance artists once worked, as well as paying a visit to the Baptistery and the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral.

Before exploring with your guide, head inside an ancient rectory next to the Cathedral and watch a fascinating video (until March 2019) using exclusive images and reconstructions to show how the whole Duomo complex has grown over the centuries with the rest of Florence, known as the “Cradle of the Renaissance.”

Led by an expert Opera del Duomo guide, the only guide allowed, see the workshop where Michelangelo carved David. Today, professional stonemasons work with passion to restore authentic masterpieces using original tools and time-honoured techniques. Next, visit the Baptistery and the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral with your guide, and learn about the wonderful works of art here, many restored in the stonemasons' workshop.

A few steps from Cathedral Square, or Piazza del Duomo, savour a taste of Chianti along with titbits of cheese and balsamic vinegar. Keep your ticket, valid 72 hours, and enjoy the chance to visit other monuments at the complex such as the Crypt of St. Reparata, the Opera del Duomo Museum and Giotto's bell tower.
