Highly recommended

Our guide - Paula (Hoped I had gotten her name right 🤞🏻) was awesome 👏🏻 ! We visited on the opening day right after the temporary closure resulted from the Covid-19 situation . My husband and I were kind of worrying if the tour would be cancelled even till the day before 😅 Paula was at the designated meeting point early despite the downpour . She’s such a lovely and friendly lady which immediately brighten up our morning thus heightening up our excitement for the tour to commence . Trip up to the top and roof of the duomo was a slow yet steady one with constant reminders by our guide on the wet floors and steep steps etc. We were really touched by Paula’s enthusiasm and passion for her job as she really tried her best in explaining all that we should know without omitting information and must-knows regarding the duomo despite stopping every now and then for explanation and sharing throughout our tour under the rain . Really grateful to have her for our activity ! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

What to expect

Hit two churches with one tour with this guided tour of Duomo di Milano, which takes you underground and above the elaborate Gothic cathedral. The tour begins underground where you will see the "Basilica Nuova," a cathedral completed in 355, thousands of years before the Duomo di Milano was even constructed. After exploring its tunnels and uncovering its secrets, your guide will take you to the main body of the cathedral, arguably one of the most beautiful and most decorated in the whole world. The church took over 6 centuries to complete and was guided by at least 78 architects - Leonardo da Vinci included. Here, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at the church's long history, including the details behind its very long construction. Get a chance to admire the 3,400 statues, 135 gargoyles and 700 figures that decorate the church and more! Finally, head on over to the viewing terrace, and enjoy panoramic views over Milan. End the tour with a visit to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, one of the world's oldest shopping malls.
