The vault of heaven between man and God
A thematic visit inside the Cathedral with particular attention to the pictorial cycle of Brunelleschi's Dome.
A visit inside the Cathedral to understand the origins and the history of the religious heart of Florence. The itinerary, different from the generic one, allows you to get closer to unique masterpieces of the Florentine Renaissance, by accessing the central nave and the side aisle up to the Choir, where the pictorial cycle of the dome, of about 3,600 square meters, made by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari, will be illustrated with particular attention. The guided tour - lasting less than 1 hour, after meeting - will take place inside the Cathedral. No steps to climb.
