Full description
Discover the Duomo, one of the most iconic buildings in Milan, the true symbol of the city. Walk through the main aisle and explore the history of the city, the artistic and architectural features of the church, its countless paintings, statues and stained glass windows. Uncover  its many anecdotes and legends, its pagan elements such as zodiac symbols and the many hidden secrets this place still hides!

Head downstairs to the basement to visit the mysterious crypt under the altar, and see where the ancient tomb of Archbishop Carlo Borromeo is located.

For the second part of your tour, save your energy and skip 200 steps as you use the elevator to head up the steepest part of the cathedral and reach the first terrace.

• On the terraces of the cathedral there are no bathrooms or shops, so please bring water
• In the rare case of excessively bad weather, the terrace may be closed for safety reasons, in this case your ticket will be refunded
• Please note that when entering a Christian church, your shoulders and legs should be covered
