Description

Our licensed English-speaking tour guide will lead you to discover the Duomo, one of the most iconic building of Milan. Fall in love with its gold plated statue of the Madonnina (the “Little Virgin Mary,” the affectionate name given by the Milanese to the statue that stands on the top of the Cathedral) and see the true symbol of the city.

The Duomo is the fourth largest Cathedral in Europe, and is a neverending work-in-progress: the construction started over 600 years ago – in 1386, and ended only recently in 1965… well, if you consider it finished, given we are still waiting for a bell tower.

While walking through the naves, you will not only discover the history of the church, but also to the history of the city and of Italy, from the artistic and architectural features of the building to its countless statues and stained glass windows.

Anecdotes and mysteries will also be unveiled and you will be thrilled to have been in a very special place.

Important Information
