    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in front of the Milan Duomo, and—if there are more than six people on the tour—don headphones so you won’t miss anything your guide says. Admire the exterior of the cathedral before going inside, contemplating the nearly 600 years it took to finish construction and the seemingly endless array of statues and spires that decorate the Duomo.

    Follow your guide right past the lines on this skip-the-line tour, entering the dimly-lit cathedral. Learn about some of the lesser-known architectural and design features—including some symbols that are usually associated with paganism—as well as some of the cathedral’s prominent elements.

    See paintings, sculptures, and stained glass windows decorating the vast interior space—the largest cathedral in Italy—and hear how Milan’s Duomo fits into the city’s history. Go beneath the Duomo floor into the crypt below the altar to see the tomb of Saint Charles Borromeo, a 16th-century archbishop of Milan.

    The tour finishes back outside the cathedral in Piazza Duomo.

    Note that you’ll need to choose either a weekend or weekday departure. This tour does not include a visit to the Duomo rooftop.

    The tour leaves on a continue bases from a spot in front of The Doumo. I'm sure you can book a convenient time to do the tour. If you don't want to drive there you can take the Hop on and off bus which drop you off close by.
