What to expect

The Duomo is one of the most important symbols of Milan. It is the third largest Catholic Cathedral in the world and is found in the very center of the city. The Duomo of Milan is one of the most unique churches on the European continent. It is 157 meters long and 40,000 people can comfortably fit inside of it.

This tour will start in front of the main, central, gate of the Cathedral where you will meet your licensed English Speaking Guide, who will start with a brief historical introduction of the city, from the origins to modern days. With over 3200 statues and 135 spires, it is definitely best seen from above! You will take the elevator to the roof, a unique and memorable opportunity to walk on top of this huge multi-faceted Cathedral. The views are magnificent and the opportunity to see the pinnacles and sculptures up close is amazing. You will see the city skyline and your Guide will show you the buildings that you can admire from the top, witnessing the life of the city in constant evolution on the top of its most emblematic monument.

During the tour, the local guide will also provide general information about the city, giving you the keys to enjoy your sojourn in Milan, tailored to your time and needs!
