    This tour is worth every penny spent on it. 90 minutes packed with information and unforgettable experience. Also, time saver - we did not have to wait a single minute to enter the duomo, or the archeological site, or going up to the terrace. Our tour guide was fantastic, narrative filled with both information and attitude. That is undoubtedly the best way to visit the duomo.

    Very nice and a lot of information given by the guide. We are glad we took it so we can understand all the different things that we were seen. Also going to the terrace was great to see the city from above as well as all the intricate construction and gargoyles that surround the building. With the guide we got a fast pass to the elevators to get to the top. Going down was fun but narrow passage. You could take elevator down but you had to wait in line. It is always easy to go down than up the stairs. It is worth the price plus you get a very nice explanation of the cathedral as well as the sculptures in the area. Saint Bartholomew sculpture is very impressive with details as well as the story given by the guide. We took pictures of everything as the cathedral is one of the biggest and it shows. Close to shopping, if you are into high end merchandise, and the food was exquisite no matter where you go

    This was an excellent tour for two of us ably led by Catio. We enjoyed learning so much about the history of the building and of course the religious aspects. The archaeological visit under the building presented a good appreciation of what had been before. We concluded the tour with a trip to the roof via escalator and some stairs. Wonderful!
