Full description
Discover the heart of Florence and learn all the secrets and the history that lies behind the Duomo Complex. Santa Maria del Fiore, designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, is the third largest church in the world and was the largest church in Europe when it was completed in the 15th Century. Your local guide will show you the main sights while telling you interesting anecdotes on how this masterpiece was created. You’ll also visit the Duomo Museum in which you’ll discover masterpieces of Arnolfo, Ghiberti, Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Antonio Pollaiolo, Verrocchio, and Michelangelo. This is the largest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world. Last but not least, admire the stunning Baptistry of San Giovanni, one of the most ancient churches in Florence, which sits opposite the city's cathedral, the church of Santa Maria del Fiore and its incredible East Door - that Michelangelo called the Gates of Paradise.

    bellissima visita, enrica è stata davvero bravissima. traspare il suo entusiasmo e l'amore che ha per quello che ci ha mostrato e ce lo ha trasmesso con tante storie, aneddoti, particolari sconosciuti della storia della costruzione della cattedrale e dei fatti storici avvenuti li. ci ha poi portato alla scoperta del museo dell'opera del duomo che è stata una vera sorpresa. museo bellissimo che racchiude gli originali delle opere destinate alla facciata e al campanile, e le porte originali del battistero. manca davvero il fiato davanti a tanta meraviglia. enrica ci ha spiegato tutti i dettagli, le storie, i significati.. un vero plus! è come salire su un ponteggio e vedere ogni dettaglio da vicino. spettacolare. ci sono poi i progetti che hanno partecipato ai vari concorsi dell'epoca. davvero interessantissimo. un museo poco conosciuto ma imperdibile. abbiamo concluso col battistero, un'altra capolavoro. che dire, Firenze non finisce di stupire, e scoprirlo con enrjca non ha prezzo!
