Climbing and lowering at one point is done in the same direction and attention to those who climb or descend. The house is a little embarrassed. The view is wonderful. Up to the top you can see the two dome cathedrals.

In less than 30 minutes, you can climb to the top. Although there are a lot of stairs, they're quite even & it's a relatively simple climb, accessible for younger & older visitors. Stop off en route to view the spectacular fresco work on the...More

Thinking of the time at which this was built it really is an astonishing feat of engineering. On our recent visit we were unable to see the dome from the inside which was a little disappointing for this trip. Still stupendous.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

The cathedral itself and the piazza around it are wheelchair friendly. The actual dome of the cathedral however is not, and can only be reached by a very steep climb on foot.
