An impressive and insightful tour guide showed everything about duomo and more. She was able to explain things well in both Italian and English foe everyone to understand what she was saying. The timing was perfect, you got to see everything without going too quickly. Will definitely be recommending others do the same tour!

Our tour group started late because we waited for a few stragglers and it was larger than I expected. Be aware that “small group” means 30 people. Also, if you go on Sunday morning, the apse is not available because of services In the church. However, i still rate the tour highly as Catia, our guide was excellent and we all had a radio receiver in order to hear her well at all times. It was not my first time in Milano and the Duomo but this tour was well worth joining.
