We went through this on a walking tour & due to the fact we had a great guide it was very interesting & informative. I think you need to have a guide going through this museum.

The ticket included Cathedral,museum,Bell tower 441 steps and Dome 463 steps all for 10 euros .While it was a physical effort to walk that many steps you have 24 hours from first using the ticket so you can shred the pain out .The view from the top of the Dome was amazing and well worth the effort.

We know that a lot of original art work from the basilica and the baptistry is presented in this Museum, but we had to give it a miss for construction works. Maybe we'll add to our rating next time...

What a cool and awkward adventure. CAUTION>>>if you do not like enclosed spaces or hiking stairs, this is not the attraction for you! I visited during the week on a rainy day, which meant less crowds. Hiked to the top of the tower, very dark, narrow and awesome. Well worth the extra exercise to see the city from the top.

Unfortunately much of the museum was closed due to conrstuction works. The paradise door (there is just a replica at the baptistery) is worth the visit and 6 months later I saw some of the things I saw there in an exhibition in my hometown. Awesome things there!

I went with friends on a school trip. It was really good and especially interesting. Nice location with shops and placed to eat near-by.

I love that 18 people gave this a poor review, and wish it was 400 because then I'd continue to have this jewel all to myself. While thousands, perhaps millions, of tourists gape at the baptistry doors of Ghiberti outside -- utter replicas -- the real ones, newly restored and as bright as the day they were made are here...

One ticket at the current price of 10 Euro gets you entrance into much of the museum complex including the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistry of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Opera Museum. I felt I got my money's worth just visiting the Cathedral and the Bapistry. You... More

You must see this once in Florence. This is one of the top attractions of Florence besides the huge Statue of David. We went with a tour group. I would recommend it to those contemplating on visiting such attraction. The good thing is that it is free to get in. So much to learn from what you can see. Our... More
