CLIMBING OF BRUNELLESCHI’S CUPOLA

The Cupola is a masterpiece of the renaissance, climb up to the top to enjoy Florence from 330 feet high, admire the biggest frescored surface of the world, follow your expert guide along the secret passages of the 1400s.

It is a masterpiece capable of withstanding lightings, earthquakes, wars and passage of time…with its diemeter of 46 meters is the biggest dome in the world built without any scaffolding by using a double shell with a space in between. The inner shell (with a thickness of more than two metres) is made of light bricks set in a herringbone pattern and is the self-supporting structural element while the outer dome simply serves as a heavier, wind-resistant covering. With this tour you will walk through the space between the two shells up to the top of the lantern, 330 feet high from where you’ll dominate the skyline of Florence and the Tuscan countryside. Along the climbing you will have the chance to admire the biggest surface painted in the world (3600 square meters) and the marvelous marble floor of the cathedral.
