Dome only - which tkt?


We are in Florence for 4 days next month - but the only monument we wish to visit is the dome - basically climb up the 463 steps to the top gallery.

Which is the ticket that we need to purchase? - pl note that we do not wish to see any of the museums or other attractions in the city. Just climb the dome and admire the city. We will probably go first thing in the morning - I believe it opens at 830am.

This is the website we are looking at:


Thx in advance......

Unfortunately that is the only way you can climb the dome.

You can buy the tickets on the day from the opera ticket office next door or the other ticket office by the baptistry. I would also advise for you by it in advance and book your time slot. I have just got back and there were no time slots for the next 5 days.

The baptistry is a fascinating building and worth going it.

You can also admire the city from the piazza michelangelo for free or climb the tower at palazzo vecchio
