Discover the construction technique and some of the original machines invented by Filippo Brunelleschi, climbing the 463 steps.The Dome is a masterpiece capable of resisting lightning, earthquakes, wars and the passage of time ... With its diameter of 46 meters is the largest dome in the world built without scaffolding, using a double shell with an intermediate space. The inner shell (with a thickness of more than two meters) is made of light bricks embedded in a herringbone pattern and is the self-supporting structural element while the external dome simply acts as a covering to resist the wind. From the top of the lantern, 100 meters high, you will dominate the skyline of Florence and the Tuscan countryside.The entrance ticket to the Dome is valid for 72 hours and is also valid for the Opera del Duomo Museum, for the Bell Tower and for the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Baptistery.
