Excellent visit to one of the miracles that survived the bombings of the Second World War. A rich experience is visiting Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Furthermore, the walking tour was very peaceful and we had a history lesson with our guide Elisa. It's definitely worth it, especially because getting a ticket to the Last Supper is extremely difficult!

Amazing experience! Lots of scaffolding at the moment spoils it a bit for photos. Suggest early morning. We had 10am went up straight away , after about an hour and a bit being inside, queue to get in was horrendous!!

This was an amazing tour and a very informative guide. She gave us all time to enjoy the views and the sculpting and explained to us in detail. This is worth every penny!!!

Worked perfectly, the cathedral is beautiful, it's worth it, it has the wow effect. Always recommended, we booked it alone with an audio guide.

You can’t miss this while in Milan! It is truly beautiful!
