Explore two of the most important buildings in Piazza di San Giovanni on this tour of the Baptistery and the Opera del Duomo Museum. You can even climb Giotto's Bell Tower to get one of the best views of Florence!
Baptistery & Duomo Museum Tour + Giotto's Bell Tower
At 12 pm, we'll meet at Piazza di San Giovanni to start a guided tour of two iconic places in Florence: the Baptistery of St. John and the Opera del Duomo Museum.
We'll head first to the Baptistery of Florence, an octagonal temple declared a World Heritage Site with a striking façade covered in slabs of white Carrara and green Prato marble cladding. Did you know that it's one of the oldest buildings in the city?
We'll enter the interior through a replica of what Michelangelo called the Gates of Paradise to admire the incredible Byzantine mosaics in the dome of the Baptistery. Here, we'll discuss the origins of this monument, once believed to have been dedicated to the Roman god Mars.
After visiting the Baptistery, we'll go to the Opera del Duomo Museum. Accompanied by our guide, we'll check out the most important pieces housed in this exhibition, from old construction models of the Cathedral to works by Brunelleschi, Donatello and Michelangelo.
At 1:30 pm, we'll say goodbye at the starting point and give you the tickets to climb Giotto's Bell Tower on your own. Here, you can enjoy one of the best views of Florence from a towering height of 276 feet (84 meters) and take all the photos your heart desires.
Guided tour of the Baptistery & Duomo Museum
If you don't want to climb Giotto's Bell Tower, you can choose the option that focuses exclusively on the guided tour of the Florence Baptistery and the Opera del Duomo Museum.
The Baptistery is closed until 18th December 2022 for restoration works. During this period, you'll go on a guided tour inside the Duomo instead of visiting the Baptistery.
