  • Timetable 9-19.30, seven days a week. Price €18 single ticket (Cathedral crypt, Dome, Bell Tower, Museum, Baptistery). The museum offers pieces of absolute value (from the gates of the Ghiberti, to the mercy of Michelangelo) exhibited in an excellent way. The route is spread over 3 levels with some explanatory videos both in Italian and in English, very interesting with extraordinary aerial images. There is also a terrace on the third floor from which you have a nice view of the dome. The bar and the bookshop are also excellent.

  • Well arranged museum, containing all the treasures from Duomo Firenze. When the empty cathedral is a bit of disappointment upon arrival, this museum definitely worth a visit. Michelangelo's late work Pietá (removal of Christ from the cross) incl.his selfportrait is an unmissable gem there.
  • Very interesting and superbly presented and organized. Precious works by Donatello, and the famous Gates of Paradise by Lorenzo Ghiberti. Not to be missed!
