      Great tour, albeit with a confusing ticket description of activities

      The ticket bought indicated guided tour of duomo with optional tour of the terrace. The ticket did NOT state the tour of the terrace was extra, however. As they did not have the proper amount of tickets, the tour guide graciously covered the tickets for my wife and I: doing the right thing. Overall a great experience with an equally great guide! The ticket description should be amended if the terrace is to cost extra.

      A “must do” for large sites

      Whilst visiting Venice for a week, I decided to hop on a train to Milan on a day trip. Clearly you are limited as to how much you can do in a day. However, I decided visiting the Duomo and adjoining Museum would be the main attraction. I booked a guided tour of the Duomo, but didn’t add the roof top experience. The guide greeted us all, and we joined the queue for groups. It took about 20 minutes to get into the Duomo due to the high security level checks. Throughout this time our Guide kept us entertained with information and pictures of the history and external features of this beautiful building, and involved the group in this. Once inside, we were shown around the Duomo and all features, and ceremonies explained. I left the tour feeling I had learnt so much from a religious, historical and scientific perspective. Despite the initial queue, I never felt rushed nor short changed. Brilliant tour, fantastic guide.

      Amazing.

      This is something you should experience. I am very happy I took it. Benefit for me was not only skipping long line, but also a guide. We had amazing guide – trust me it makes a different. She took us to most interesting places and sculptures. Stories we heard will always stay with me. View is great, but building itself is breath taking. Afterward we could stay there outsell to enjoy this atmosphere. What you should know: We took lift but still there are some stars to climb. In summer, it is very hot on top (take some water and had cover). Military is very strict, make sure you do not carry anything potentially dangerous, or what can be recognize as such (only one souvenir per person – seriously, they confiscate my fridge magnets).
