Very easy to purchase tickets. The tour to see each of the exhibits was easy to follow. Each exhibit should be visited. The Duomo is amazing and hard to believe this was built 600+ years ago.

Hello, we had a lovely time. The guide was EXCELLENT. There were some elderly people in the group that started arguing with her, I think they wanted a more personalised experience. She handled it really well, as they were particularly beligerant, and carried on delivering an excellent and really knowledgable tour. She has such passion for her city and it really shows. 10/10, would recommend.
