P.za del Duomo, 4 , P.za del Duomo, 4, 20122 Milano MI, Italy

Duomo Square n.4 (under the arches next to 12 OZ Coffee Joint). Meet the Guide 15 minutes before the starting time.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

Great, knowledgeable guide who had been doing tours 10 years. She had a sense of humour and made it interesting for us. Small group which was nice. Our time had been changed from morning to afternoon. Found this out after calling the office to be told the change due to numbers. Shame as we were hanging around waiting until I rang the office. Overall very good value and insight.

A very good tour. A must during the visit, even though there was no line when we were there. A lot of interesting info. The brochure inside the cathedral does not cover even 10%. We didn't take the similar tour in Florence, and it was a mistake.

This is well worth doing. Our guide was wonderful and very informative. We saw things that we would not have seen had we gone on our own. I know this because I went back a few days later on my own and it was a limited experience.

Our guide was great, she’s very experienced and gave us a lot of information about the Duomo. Her English is also very good. However, I was surprised that the tour did not includ the rooftop. This needs to be clearly stated at the stage of purchase under exclusions

We rarely take guided tours when travelling and this time we did so to skip the long line to enter the duomo. It was worth the try not only for the line but for the excellent viator insight guide of this amazing cathedral. Not to be missed when visiting Milan especially with a guided tour .

The guide was great and mentioned some interesting facts but after we lost some time going through security, there was little time for her to show us the beautiful church. I don't think it was worth the cost.

The tour was great and the guide also, however when I booked the tour I requested the tour with the elevator. When I got there the guide told me that it was only the inside tour - no elevator needed. I was able to purchase a ticket from him and do the other part of the tour which was fantastic - on the rooftop of the Duomo - I'm so glad I was lucky enough to get this. I was also lucky that the tour was on Sunday - I got to hear the organ which sounded wonderful all during the tour if you don't like music playing which can make it a bit hard to hear the guide, don't go on a Sunday. Our guide was good about making himself heard and picking quieter places to explain things. Walking the rooftop isn't for the faint at heart and does include up and down steps but well worth it. Not only is the view terrific, but seeing the statues and flying buttresses up close and walking through them is great. A word of caution - don't take a backpack if at all possible for the rooftop tour - the guards make you empty it for security. Even a handbag gets a thorough look through. The security isn't quite a tough for the inside tour. Unfortunately with the state of the world this is something we need to get used to, but everyone was very polite and helpful. This is something not to be missed.

Not a bad tour of the Duomo, wish our tour guide was able to give some more historical information about the construction of design of the cathedral itself.
