What to Expect
The tour starts from the archaeological area underneath the Cathedral. Follow in the footsteps of St. Ambrose, Patron Saint of Milan, and St Augustine and discover the Baptistery of St. John and the Church of Santa Tecla. Built during the 4th century and demolished in the Medieval Age to make space for the cathedral, the archaeological site was discovered in 1961. You will see a magnificent example of octagonal early Christian Baptistery and learn about the life in Milan during the Roman age, when the city was capital of the Empire.

Just a few steps inside, you will reach the inside of the cathedral. It is the most iconic monument of the city of Milan and one of the biggest churches in the world. With its 3400 statues, 55 stained glass windows, beautiful altars and paintings, the Duomo is the most important example of Gothic style in Northern Italy. Get hands-on with the six-century history of the construction, and look at Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Modern artworks.

The elevator takes you up to the roof, where you will see spires and sculptures from close up. Climb the 50 steps to reach highest terraces and walk near the main spire, which hosts the golden statue of the Virgin. Enjoy a magnificent view of the city and discover monuments and landmarks with your guide. On bright days, you will even be able to see the Alps.
