Top ways to experience Cupola del Brunelleschi
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

I would storngly advice viisting the Cupola, to get a better view of the ceuiling of it, and a great view of the city. Note that you'll have to climb the more than 400 stairs and that only the Brunelleschi ticket (30€) gives access to the Cupola.

We did not find the steps to be a problem. The view both inside and outside the dome is stunning.

There are several places on the way up to rest if you need to take a breath

Just do it, 463 steps are not impossible for what you get! And if you are in pretty good health, even if not sporty, which I'm not, you can do it. The impossible thing is how to get the tickets, not to climb the dome!

2/3 of the way up you will stop and see the artwork. Amazing. But it’s a brutal climb up. Worth it if you ask me. Claustrophobic folks may have issues as some of the path is really narrow but you’re constantly moving so I think you will be fine.

The views make the 400 plus steps you climb worthwhile. Take a map with Florence attractions so you can identify them from up here. Recommend early morning to help avoid the crowds

This place was huge and amazing. It was hard to believe how intricate the decorations were, but how large it was.

The art, architecture, and history of this famous dome is a wondrous achievement, built by Brunelleschi and able to be viewed by us.

Fantastic view once you are at the top! In my opinion, after visiting both, The Tower and The Dome are offering the same view.

I would choose The Dome and skip The Tower.

Do not miss it and try to book at sunset time when the City is covering itself with Gold. Book on internet prior to your arrival.
great views at the paintings on the Cupola

Booked online for just €20, the climb up is quite something, lots of steps, but worth it for the view from the top. You get time on the inner balcony where you can see all the paintings on the roof and look down on the cathedral below, time for photos of the view from the outer lower balcony and then another couple of flights of steps to the top and the bells. The journey down over the dome is slightly scary but all in all a very worthwhile experience, loved it, felt like an achievement
