We included the tower which I say is a must do. But be prepared bec it’s 418 steps to top and it was hard. The video guide is confusing because the letters on the screen don’t correspond to a thing on the tour so figuring out what room you were in was hard each time we moved. The map on the guide is just not the best. Even the operators in each room didn’t know what letter we should pick. The doors outside each room could easily have a sign with the letter that matched the guide and that would solve everything. It did not.

Climbing the tower with only 3 other people was great for us. Having such a quiet, relaxing, uncrowded view over Florence was a special experience for us.

Beautiful Cathedral and panoramic view from balcony. Dogo’s Palace visit was also very interesting. Guide Roberta was first class.

This building is mind blowing and stunningly beautiful. Do not miss touring this and learning about the Medici.

Very interesting highly recommended very organized even with the audio guide was a new experience
