    The small group turned into a private tour. Various cancellations due to the corona virus concerns. Alessandra was an amazing guide and well versed in English and Spanish. She was very knowledgeable and welcomed input or questions. Highly recommend. I don't recommend that easy!!!

    Leonardo, yes Leonardo, was knowledgable and friendly. The explanation for the construction of the dome and history of the Duomo were thorough. Views from the top are not to be missed. Leonardo provided excellent suggestions for other don't miss sites, particularly the Duomo museum which is right on the square near the Duomo, contains many of the original works from the structure including one of Michaelangelo's Pietas, and does a great job of explaining the history of the Duomo.
