How to book the Florence Brunelleschi Pass (avoid dates when Giotto’s Campanile is closed)

The main attractions of a trip to Florence seem to be 1) Duomo Cupola & Giotto’s Bell Tower and 2) Uffizi Gallery.

Book today the Brunelleschi Pass, which gives you access to a few things, including the Duomo Cupola and Giotto’s Campanile, and keep track of how and why.

In particular, in the case of Giotto’s Bell Tower, there is a period of closure listed, so it would be a good idea to refer to it if you are traveling during this period.

Of course, you can also use your browser’s translation function.


Enter the ticket sectionIf you check the ticket section, you will see that there are three types of passes.



Brunelleschi Pass – The only pass among the three that includes the Duomo Dome2.

Giotto Pass – Pass without the Duomo Dome3.

Giberti Pass – Pass without Giotto’s bell tower​I’m going on this trip anyway, but I don’t want to miss anything, so I choose the Brunelleschi Pass.


Check detailsIf you click view detail, detailed information will appear.



I think I saw that it was possible to use the elevator at the Duomo in Milan.

In Florence, elevators are not available for both the Duomocupola and Giotto’s Campanile.

I think I’ve seen people say that people with claustrophobia should consider this because it’s quite narrow and has high stairs.

It also shows the approximate time it will take, and I found out something very important.

Giotto’s Bell Tower will be closed for repairs from November 13 to 17, 2023, and February 19 to 23, 2024!​If you want to climb Giotto’s bell tower, it would be a good idea to check the schedule.

Please note that the museum is closed on the first Tuesday of every month.


Decide on the start date and check ticket reservation status.


Click the calendar at the top right to select the date you want to visit.

The criteria for choosing a date is based on when you start visiting the dome, and you can enter places that can be entered with the pass for 3 days.

So, it’s usually a good idea to plan to enter the Duomo Dome on the first day and visit other places for the rest of the day.

You must reserve a time to visit the Duomo Dome.

​The price of the pass is 30 euros for adults and 12 euros for children aged 7 to 14, as shown below.


My family will be visiting in January, and ticket reservations are open for up to 125 people per time slot.

8 people made a reservation for the 11:15~12:00 time slot.

After selecting the number of people and time, go to the shopping cart and proceed with payment.


Click Go to Cart to see the payment amount screen.


The word checkout is a bit awkward, but you can think of it as an online payment system.

Anyway, just pay.

hahaPayment can be made with a credit card, but you will be asked whether you want to pay in Korean Won or Euros.

I also made an error once or twice when processing using the card number and CVV number, but when I tried again, the payment proceeded much more smoothly than I expected.


After payment is completed, you will see this screen.

If you check your email address authenticated for payment, you will see that the number of passes (technically speaking, receipts) for the number of people has arrived as a PDF.

Just print out the receipt with the barcode and place it in your Italian itinerary file and you’re ready!​It is said that tickets can be reserved approximately three months in advance, so it would be a good idea for those planning to travel this winter to make reservations in advance.

Try to avoid the days when Giotto’s bell tower is closed.
