The Opera Museum

The expansion of the Museum of the Work of Santa Maria del Fiore, completed in 1215, not only shed new light on works like Michelangelo’s La Pietà or Donatello’s Maddalena but it changed the very physiognomy of the museum transforming it into a modern museum which tells a story while winking at social media (Facebook and Instagram) – like its American cousins.

Its narrative concerns not only the works of art but also the churches which the works refer to offering the visitor scenographic and interpretive tools which show the works in their context.

This is why entering into the Museum of the Work of Santa Maria del Fiore means travelling back in time to medieval and Renaissance Florence, participating in the building of the cathedral by Arnolfo di Cambio and Francesco Talenti, partaking in the works of the Bell tower projected and completed by Giotto and in creation of Brunelleschi’s majestic Dome.

Take this time travel tour and walk into Florence’s past, brushing past its masterpieces – it’s a unique experience.


The tour takes 2 hours.
