Climbing the Dome during Easter
We're going to visit Florence with a group of students during the weekend of Easter (Saturday, Sunday and Monday). We would really like to climb up the Dome, but I'm not sure if we will be able to. I've read that it's closed during the Saturday of the Holy Week, and during Easter. Do they mean Sunday and Monday of Easter, or only Sunday?

yes, the dome is open Easter Monday
The dome is generally open Monday through Saturday but around Easter it is closed Holy Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Easter so 4 days straight.... but it will be open the Monday after Easter! So your group should get the chance to climb up the Cupola
