As we have mentioned earlier, you can purchase the package where you can use 48 hours to visit the Santa Maria del Fiore, St. John the Baptistery and Giotto Bell Tower. You can also visit the Museo dell' Opera del Duomo and Santa Reparata.

Santa Reparata is located in the underground of the cathedral and it is actually the remains of the former church that was pulled down in 1296. This underground tomb has maintained some of the original structure and some of the tombs of the famous persons such as Giovanni Di Alamanno de' Medici and the famous architect of the dome Filippo Brunelleschi.

When you have walked of the Santa Reparata, you will see Museo dell' Opera del Duomo located behind the dome. The entrance to the museum is not easy to find but it has a lot of artistic products originally from the Santa Maria del Fiore, St. John the Baptistery and Giotto Bell Tower. A total of 750 artistic products are displayed.

The products on display range from the 13th century to the 18th century. They include the materials used during prayers. The most prominent feature of the museum is the main doors of the St. John the Baptistery: the eastern door, the northern door and the southern door. The eastern and northern doors belong to the original structure and the southern door was replicate. There are a lot of sculptures using Bible as the story backbone. The golden colored eastern door had been reputed by Michelangelo as "The Door to Heaven".

There are videos introducing the history of the museum. There is also a model showing the structure of the dome, allowing people to understand how the dome was built.
