We took a private tour, and our guide was Fiamma. The tour was excellent, covering history, architecture, and fun trivia of the cathedral. Fiamma was very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour to learn more about the history of Milan and the Duomo, as well as see the magnificence of this great monument as presented by an expert.

A truly fascinating experience. Although I was from Milan, I had never taken a guided tour of the Duomo and I discovered a lot of things I didn't know. My daughter (8 years old) also enjoyed it so much.

I wish there were 6 stars. Third time there, have had guided in different languages, but this time I got Roberto (Spanish crew). Far more details, interesting anecdotes, honestly, amazing

Everything great. Top top, great guide. Thank you very much.

Very nice place with a very friendly and professional guide.
