Your tour begins at the charming Piazza della Scala, which features the La Scala opera house and the Leonardo da Vinci Monument. Take a walk through the beautiful 19th-century arcade Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II to Piazza del Duomo and marvel at its crown jewel, the Duomo di Milano. The Milan Cathedral is a Gothic masterpiece with rich decorations and unbelievable details that took nearly 600 years to complete. Immerse yourself in the cathedral’s history as you explore its awe-inspiring interiors with your Private Guide. Marvel at the 52 pillars carved in dark stone, the marble floor, stained-glass windows and numerous monuments and artworks, such as the famous Saint Bartholomew Flayed. The tour also includes a visit to the Museum (located in the Royal Palace) to take a closer look at the statues, stained-glass windows, paintings, tapestries, architectural models, terracottas and plaster cast from the Duomo.

Enjoy a convenient pickup and drop-off by private car to avoid wasting time walking or using public transportation. Choose the extended 3,5-hour option to visit the Milan Cathedral, Museum, Archeological Area and the Rooftops. This is a premium experience because instead of climbing 250 steps you can simply take a short elevator ride to the top. The roof offers breathtaking views of Milan’s Old Town and allows visitors to admire upclose the forest of spires and pinnacles adorned with numerous statues that give the Duomo its distinctive appearance. Its highlight is the golden Madonnina, perched on the Great Spire, which represents the heart and soul of the city.
