Florence Duomo Reopens Post COVID-19

After a long period under lockdown, the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral -- commonly known as the Duomo in Florence -- reopened to the public 22 June. To ensure safety and social distancing, several measures have been enforced for visitors. A major change is that only online reservations are now accepted.

Safety Measures and Guidelines to Visit the Duomo

Here are all the safety measures and regulations in place at the Duomo in Florence:

  • Only reservations made online will be accepted at the Duomo. Visitors are discouraged from visiting the physical ticket counter at the site.
  • To ensure social distancing takes place within the premises, a wearable technological device will be provided free of cost to visitors before entry. This device, in the form of a neck tag, is designed with a sensor that will flash, vibrate and produce a sound if 2 meters (more than 6 feet) distance is not maintained between fellow visitors. These devices will be thoroughly sanitized after each use. They are also completely private and will not track visitors’ data or movements.
  • It is mandatory that visitors wear masks that cover the nose and mouth throughout the duration of their visit.
  • Temperature of all visitors will be checked via a thermal scanner before they enter the premises
  • The number of visitors allowed into the premises has been reduced as well. Please book your ticket accordingly.  

Visit the Florence Duomo

Iconic in every manner, Santa Maria del Fiore -- commonly known as the Florence Duomo -- encompasses Italian Renaissance within one, towering structure. Best represented by its magnificent red dome, the Duomo was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi back in 1436 and dedicated to Saint Mary (Virgin of the Flowers).  

Its architecture and design is intriguing, to say the least; the first thing that greets your sight is the captivating red, green and white marble paneling firmly holding up the renowned Dome. It took an army of blacksmiths, masons, carpenters and stone cutters to complete the construction of the Florence Duomo. 

The next time you’re looking to soak in some Renaissance-era art and culture, go ahead and buy a Florence Duomo ticket!

Guided Tours

The best way to learn about the architecture and cultural significance of the Duomo is by opting for a guided tour. A professional tour guide, fluent in English, Italian and Spanish will accompany you through your journey up to the Dome, enlightening you with interesting facts and trivia about the landmark. Your guided tour will vary depending on the ticket you purchase; some tours might take you in and around the complex, while others will take you up to the Cupola and/or Terraces.

Cupola Climb

The Dome, also known as the Cupola, is the most identifiable part of this landmark -- and a must-visit! Not all Florence Duomo tickets include a Cupola climb. It takes about 463 steps to climb up to the top, which gives you a close, personal view of Brunelleschi’s work, including The Last Judgement. While a ticket with Cupola might be priced higher than a regular ticket, the panoramic view of Florence from the top is absolutely worth it.

Skip The Lines

Owing to its popularity, the Florence Duomo almost always experiences long lines of visitors waiting at the ticket counter and entrance points. The best way to ensure you don’t waste time standing in the long queues is by opting for Florence Duomo skip the line tickets. These tickets not only give you access to most major parts of the structure (depending on the variant of your ticket), but also give you priority access as well.

Explore The Florence Duomo Complex

florence duomo tickets
Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore

Iconic, awe-inspiring, graceful -- best describes the most-recognizable landmark in the city of Florence: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. The city’s beautiful Renaissance-era landscape is overpowered by the red, green, white-tiled facade and towering red dome. Construction took about 150 years under principal architect Arnolfo di Cambio, completed only in 1436. The front facade is adorned with twelve Apostles with St. Mary and Child -- who the Cathedral is dedicated to. Compared to the elaborate exterior, the interiors are minimalistic; the highlight would probably be a fresco of The Last Judgement painted on the underside of the legendary dome.

Brunelleschi's Dome

Brunelleschi’s striking red Dome is an architectural marvel; unlike the regular circular structure that we see in most domes, this particular one has an octagonal design. Brunelleschi envisioned the dome to be free-standing, perched atop the already-constructed cathedral structure. What resulted of his eccentric idea is now one of the major highlights of Florence. It takes 463 steps to get to the top of the dome via a narrow stairway. Taking these steps brings to you an up-close and personal look at the handpainted frescos inside the dome, and once you’re out in the open, a captivating, bird’s eye view of the city.

Crypt of Santa Reparata

If you descend down an old stairway at the Duomo, you’ll find yourself at the Crypt of Santa Reparata. Named after an old cathedral in Florence -- that was named after Saint Reparata (a virgin martyr) -- the crypt today contains its preserved ruins that were discovered back in the 20th Century. Visitors can still identify art like mosaics and frescos from all way back in the 8th Century, giving them a better understanding of the city’s landscape and art history. An added bonus of visiting the Crypt? Keep an eye out for Filippo Brunelleschi’s tomb that’s tucked away in a corner.

Baptistry of San Giovanni

One of the oldest and most important landmarks in the city of Florence, the Baptistry of San Giovanni (Baptistry of St. John) is a sight for sore eyes. Construction began sometime in 1059 and was completed around 1128. The Baptistry, located directly in front of the Cathedral’s entrance, is designed with a single room within, but the beauty lies in its art and design. Its interior ceiling is designed with an intricate mosaic pattern. The Baptistry’s north, south and east sides are elaborately designed with bronze doors by artists like Ghiberti; the south door depicts ornate artwork of St. John the Baptist.  

duomo florence tickets
Giotto’s Campanile

Located in the same Duomo complex is Giotto’s Campanile, also known as the Bell Tower. Construction of the Campanile began in 1334 under the watchful eye of Giotto, but was completed only in 1359 after his death by Francesco Talenti. It stands tall at about 84 feet and offers panoramic views of the city rivaled probably only by the Dome. The Bell Tower is designed with white, green and red marble and further decorated with artwork by the likes of Donatello and Pisano. The Campanile’s highlight is, of course, the seven hanging bells that each play a different sound.
