Our guide, Mrs. Enrica, was really very good and engaging. I have a daughter who has finished the third year of artistic high school, and she has really had the opportunity to savor art not only with the infinite beauties that delight the eye, but with the skill of a trained, friendly and always available guide. all our curiosities. Truly a breathtaking experience. Absolutely to try.

The cathedral itself is to be forgotten inside - despite the dome fresco by Vasari (partly). The originals are in the museum. The long queuing doesn't pay off at all. The museum is impressive, as is the baptistery.

Very well organized visit, we felt safe at every step. Exceptionally good guide, we very much appreciated the references to the architecture of the cathedral and the history of the construction of the building.

Very pleasant guide, perfectly correct English which allows you to understand. The wire cutter makes it possible not to wait and to go into corners not normally accessible. I recommend
