Walk the spotless marble flooring, savor the stained-glass windows, and marvel at the wondrous frescos, including Vasari’s The Last Judgement.
As you gaze up at the Duomo from the cathedral floor, your expert host will take you through its timeline, from humble beginnings as a church in the 7th century, to its 200-year development into the architectural gem you see today.
