The Florence Baptistery is the oldest monument of the expansive Duomo complex, and it stands as an incredible icon of the Renaissance period and a perfect example of Florentine architecture. Start your tour with a fascinating video presentation which explains how the enormous complex of the Cathedral was created over centuries before venturing inside the Baptistery with your guide.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to climb the magnificent elevated gallery of Matroneo, once reserved only for women, and marvel at the charming shining mosaics and marble flooring. At the end of your visit, savor delicious Chianti wine, paired perfectly with Italian cheeses and balsamic vinegar.
