Skip the lines and enter Milan’s Duomo without waiting on this 2.5-hour small-group tour. Milan’s Duomo, or Cathedral, is one of the city’s most impressive sites, and among the most famous cathedrals in the world.

Your licensed English-speaking guide will tell you about some of Milan's curiosities, from the Sundial Trail to the Ritual of the Holy Nail, to the story of the Apostle who was skinned alive, and more.

After admiring the interior of the Duomo, you’ll head to the elevator to reach the Terraces of the Cathedral. Please note that there is no skip-the-line access available for the elevator.

Amazing tour!

Our guide Mirella was super fun and bubbly. She was very well informed and was very engaging. We were a very small group of only 8 ppl and it worked great. We had access to various things aside from the rooftop, and it was very interesting to see the Duomo from top to bottom while learning all its history. Loved Mirella, she was awesome!!

Very informative.

We were 3 of a group of 7 plus my 11 month old granddaughter. Everyone, including our guide Debbie, was very patient with us with the stroller, up and down stairs etc and when she got hungry and needed a drink, no one got annoyed which was great. Our guide was very informative and told us so much about the cathedral, it was a great tour. The only negative would be the headsets we were given, my sons did not work, the batteries in my daughter in laws, went flat during the tour, and I had trouble keeping mine on my ear ( I have small ears ). I had to hold the earpiece on all the time in order to stop it falling off. Maybe some more up to date system of transmitters is in order, maybe using your own phone with an app and you own headphones, or headphones that sit on your head anyway. Other than that very enjoyable, thank you.
