  • Challenging but the view is worth the almost 500 steps. Coming down much easier. Make sure you have water on the way up.

  • A great experience which we would highly recommend. Our English speaking guide was very informative . The view from the top is breathtaking and well worth climbing the 463 steps for. My slight criticism is that, on occasion, we could not hear her commentary through our earpieces. The one thing I would say for this tour is that you must be relatively fit as it is a long and steady climb!

  • Could not always hear in the earphones or understand the English being spoken. But still was awesome and worth seeing

  • Skipping the line is a must and our Viator Guide was wonderful...once we were up top he took us aside and told us all kinds of interesting scoop on the dome and the city below. If you are claustrophobic or tire easily, best to stay on the ground and sip an iced coffee while you wait for your friends. Wish the head phones worked a little better but it seems to be the same for all tours. If you stand next to the guide it helps you to hear better.

  • The climb up and into the dome was worth the view from the top.
    I would highly recommend it.

  • Very informative guide who managed to keep us all on time and on the correct staircase as we climbed our way up the cupola.
    He has an obvious passion for history and architecture and provided a very informative commentary.

  • Duomo Dome is amazing and a must see, although the headsets were terrible on the tour as they a lot of static so we could not really hear the guide at all times.

  • Excellent tour with Leonardo!

  • The guide was extremely hard to hear and understand. I would have preferred to do this on my own. There was no skip the line. Plus, the info in the description for the tour stated we would end up in the church at the end of the tour. This is not correct. We passed through the church and had to exit, go outside and wait in line for another 30 minutes to enter the church.

  • Skipping the line was the best! Good tour and we got to climb to the top.
