    Excellent! We were 22 minutes late ue to a train delay and our guide sweet talked the security to let us in anyways, and then she ensured we made it all the way to the top! I really appreciated the extra effort and the knowledge she provided. She even took great photos of us as well!

    The tour began at the base of the dome. Before departing, we were given a great deal of background about the construction of the cathedral. As we ascended, we took breaks at various platforms to take a breath and learn a little more. The interior of the dome was remarkable, and the explanations of the paintings were enlightening. The view from the top of the cupola was remarkable, as you could see all of Florence in all directions. Well worth the price of admission!

    Our guide Linda was great!! The view was amazing!!! The only thing that you should reconsider is the meeting point and the information given to us. To be more specific you should inform people that the guide is there half an hour before the start of the tour.We were looking for a kiosk or something like that near porta della Mandorla that did't exist.
