Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

The Milan Cathedral is an iconic tourist attraction in all of Italy, which attracts more than 5 million visitors each year. This results in long queue lines and most tours have large group sizes. However, this tour is an exception! Skip the long queues at the entrance and proceed directly into the breathtaking monument which celebrates the Gothic style of design. Rich in statues, gargoyles, and decor, the Duomo is the focal centerpiece of the city and no trip to Milan is complete without visiting this majestic cathedral.

The other big advantage of this tour is the presence of a professional English speaking guide and the small tour group size. Not only will you be always able to keep up with the guide, but you’ll also get to listen to everything he has to say enabling you to learn more about the monument and pick up insights on it that other people don’t usually know.

You also have the option to add a ‘rooftop access and tour’ after the tour of the Cathedral. With this, you can take the elevator to the top and avoid climbing 200 steps on the way there. The Duomo di Milano has an intricately designed rooftop where you can see statues and other religious symbols hidden in the pillars and arches. The rooftops are also known for their spectacular views of the city of Milan and its surroundings.

Your Experience

Walk through the magnificent halls and nave of the Duomo Cathedral, the third largest church in the world, and discover the efforts of 600 years of human labor in front of your very eyes. Stroll through the tall halls and take in the massive complex and study the architectural magnificence in the intricately designed walls, pillars and arches all studded with gothic grandeur. Through this exploration of one of Milan’s most grand monuments, a professional guide will be accompanying you and narrating commentary about the iconic landmark and the many stories associated with it. Gaze at the colorfully stained glass windows, the 96 giants and 150 gargoyles around the cathedral, view the monumental altars and tombs and study over 3000 statues; this tour covers all the bases of Milan’s Cathedral

You can also choose to add a rooftop access and tour to add to your experience. Take an elevator to the rooftops, which are arguably one of the best in the world. Spot the Catholic saints standing atop the 135 marble spires, religious figures etched into the buttresses and pillars and over 2,000 statues on the terraces of Duomo di Milano. You will also come face-to-face with the 14-foot golden statue of Mary, Madonnina. But it’s not done here. Just head over to the stone balustrades and enjoy picturesque views of the ‘Fashion Capital of The World’ as it expands below you towards the horizon.

Your guide Beatrice was absolutely delightful very welcoming to us and the group very knowledgeable and rightly so enthusiastic about the cathederal and Milan. She engaged totally with you individually often making eye to eye contact and therefore feeling she is talking to us personally. By far the most engaging guide we have experienced and so glad it was here in Milan. Thank you. We will certainly be recommending and using you again when we have the chance

Strolling through the gigantic halls of the Cathedral is all it takes to restore faith in yourself. I was so taken aback by the beauty of it all for days after

The monument with a billion (not literally) statues was where I decided to become an artist.
