When traveling in Italy, you are going to visit churches and it can easily get to a point where you are like "oh look, more paintings" and loose interest in what you are seeing. Now, the Duomo in Milan is not just 'another church,' but you can easily become jaded to even something of its magnitude...that's why I would recommend this tour. Our tour guide was knowledge and had a real love for the history of the Duomo and the Milan area in general. She shared information about facts that we never would have known and gave us a deeper appreciation of this already awesome location. One warning about the area...A member of our group was pickpocketed just before the tour and lost his wallet. Please be mindful of your surroundings no matter whare you are. It's easy to get lost in the experience of seeing the historical sites and let your guard down.

Our tour guide was lovely. It was easy to find the meeting spot (which is a win in and of itself, a lot of European tours have the most difficult/confusing meet up spots) and we were quickly provided with audio devices and let into a side entrance without having to stand in the extremely long line. We learned so much about the Duomo and the city of Milan and our guide made sure we had plenty of opportunities to ask questions, she really tailored the tour to the groups interest. The only let down was that the Viator description listed a trip to a local coffee shop and a free coffee but we discovered after the tour that the coffee was no longer offered. I hope that gets resolved!

Our tour guide Veronica was excellent. This tour takes you via lift up to the roof, through the Duomo and underneath it and outside. Very comprehensive. It takes 2-2 1/2 hours depending on crowds inside and number of questions people ask. Highly recommend especially if you are lucky enough to have Veronica who checks in to make sure people are okay and is a font of knowledge.

We’ve used Viator numerous times for small group or private tours. This is the first time we had a “meh” experience. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. Her English was proficient, however a very heavy accent made it difficult to understand her. Added to that, the poor quality hand-held tiny mic was very scratchy sounding. Most people on the tour, including us, ended up ditching our earpieces. Be aware that the tour is 2.5 hours duration and there weren’t any breaks or visible bathrooms. By 3/4 of the way through the tour, half of the group had bailed. The Duomo is fascinating, and the main advantage of this tour was skipping the lines.

Our tour guide was very good but we had a hard time understanding her at times (I am sorry I cannot remember her name).The Milan Duomo is a must see! This Cathedral is over 500 years old and they are still adding to it. The detail on the statues atop the spires is amazing. The stained glass is beautiful. The underground could be skipped. Disappointed that tis was really not a small group tour-there were over 20 in our group.

Completes a visit to Duomo, Well Worth the money!
Edgar S

Our guide was "GianLuc". He was funny, knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He loves his job and it shows. He pointed out things we would have otherwise missed. There were 3 of us on the tour and our guide. We did the Duomo interior a second time and while some of the information was the same, he had many interesting things to tell us that were different from our other guide on the Duomo tour. The archeological sites underneath the Duomo are interesting and show the history of the site. The Terrace/Roof part of the tour was vey pleasant and informative, with a Great view It is well worth the money. Complete your visit to the Duomo by taking this tour and visit the Duomo Museum I(price included in this ticket/tour)!

The Duomo is an extraordinary building outside and in and Paola, our guide, was brilliant in the way she paced us through it and told its stories and pointed out the major elements. I recommend taking this tour especially if you could get Paola as your guide.

This was a great way to see the Duomo highlights, spaces I wouldn't have paid attention to otherwise and of course the Roof top. Skipping the line was a MAJOR plus to this tour. Paulo was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable, very kind and he added some humor which always makes for a great tour. Would definitely recommend this. I never felt rushed on taking pictures like on some tours.

A great tour, and a great guide - Debora/Debi! Just 3 of us, so we had the guide pretty much to ourselves. Very interesting walk underground, in the cathedral and a long walk around at the terrace. Couldn't be better.!

How much more intimate can you get to know a church when your inside, and on top of it?! Make no mistake, it will take EFFORT to get to the very top and those with mobility problems might want to think before booking this tour. But the reward is breathtaking! To see the details of the Flying buttresses, the statues precariously perched on the steeples, the panoramic view of Milan, to sit at the very top and look and walk at the very bottom of the church was just amazing. The inside of the Duomo was just as awe inspiring as well. It's only way to experience this gem of Milan.
