  • Admire Milan from the top once you reach the Terraces

Full description
The tour starts from the visit of the Archaeological Area, where it will be possible to find out about the remains of the Baptistery of San Giovanni and the Basilica of Santa Tecla (4th Century). The visit continues inside the Cathedral. Secrets are hidden within the high walls of the Duomo. It took five centuries to complete the Duomo and the result is an extraordinary combination of forms, where white marble became the protagonist and the interpreter of Lombard Gothic style. During the visit you will have the opportunity to learn small and big mysteries inside the Cathedral of Milan. The visit ends on the suggestive terraces of the Duomo from where you can admire the wonderful panorama of the city and enjoy a breathtaking view.

Perfect introduction to Milan

We only had a day to spend in Malta so getting a private tour of the Duomo with Marilena was the perfect introduction to the city. She was very knowledgeable about the city’s culture and history and was patient in answering all our questions. She was also very friendly and helpful in recommending other places to visit in the city including stores and restaurants. Would highly recommend and we would love to return to the city to get another tour from Marilena!

Our private guide was wonderful, knowledgeable, and really passionate.

I would definitely book this tour again. Guida Turistica was our guide and she was wonderful. She really kept my 14 and 16 year old engaged and they enjoyed the tour. To be honest, they were tired of the tours of cathedrals in Italy (we had been to a few) and this one was our last and they were the happiest on it. The tour took us to the roof and the basement as well as the cathedral itself. This made it even more fun for the kids and my husband and I loved it.

Incredible!

What a great experience. Our guide really knew her history about the Duomo. She displayed real passion for her work and left us better educated. The Duomo was stunning, absolutely immense, and a true source of pride for the people of Milan. We took a private tour which included a visit to the rooftop which is not to be missed! This was a unique experience and perspective of a cathedral, so if you like taking pictures, please take the time to see the rooftop. You won’t regret it. (Our private tour included elevator access to the rooftop too)
