This was a fantastic tour I relay enjoyed it. We arrived at the meeting point and found our guide (it wasn’t very clear but there is a person with a bike showing the name of the tour)- the tour guide then takes you in for your tickets (don’t forget ID!) the last supper was beautiful and it was very helpful hearing the information about it (we would not have noticed half the information!) The tour afterwards was really useful and interesting to learn all about Milan and find our feet. I would really recommend this tour !

Love the easy access!!! The tour start when you line up at the left side of the cathedral to clim up to the roof top, then you follow the rooftop and climb down to enter into the cathedral. Fantastic view of Milan are on the way down after the rooftop. Tips: you can go for any booked timeslot, and before exit, there is an underground exibition so you can see it free, audioguide is also free but it can only be taken in the cathedral after climbing down.

Very informative and interesting. The guide was very friendly and happy to answer questions the whole way round! We got to go on the rooftops and there the guide left us so we could enjoy the views and head back into the cathedral at our own pace. Generally lovely experience all around.

Marcella was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable of the history. We thoroughly enjoyed this & is absolutely worth the money as we wouldn’t have known everything she told us! Very very cool to have seen this iconic painting in real life

Had an amazing tour with Alessandra. She was so knowledgeable and kind. She was super patient and understanding with our young toddler. Well organized; don’t think twice about booking!
