If you are looking for a unique and particular experience that few can boast of having ever visited, the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo is for you. The treasures it holds are priceless: you can admire, together with your professional guide, Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise, Michelangelo's second Pietà known as Pietà Bandini, and the Penitent Magdalene, that is, the wooden statue of Donatello. Let us take you through the legends and adventures of the construction of the great complex of the Florentine Cathedral: you will admire the bronze tiles by Brunelleschi and Ghiberti. Do you know why you can admire them both? With your guide you will discover the history of the race that lies behind these two very precious artifacts. You will also have the opportunity to imagine, thanks to a faithful reconstruction of the position of the statues, how the facade of the Cathedral must have been in the original plans. Your tour will end with a visit to the renowned Baptistery of San Giovanni where you can admire one of the largest mosaics in the world.
