Spend two hours visiting the beautiful monuments of the Florence Cathedral complex with an experienced guide, who will begin with the Baptistery and its famous golden vault decorated with Byzantine mosaics. Continue on to the Opera del Duomo Museum and see the original Gates of Paradise, the Magdalene by Donatello, the Pietà by Michelangelo, and many other Renaissance masterpieces.
