We had some extra time in Milan, so we chose to see the vineyard. The villa is amazing to walk through and the grounds are beautiful. The audio is very informative.

Definitely get the ticket that included archeological area as we found that even more interesting than the cathedral itself.

Thank you! The guide was knowledgeable and kind. She took care of us well and it was easy to find and follow along.
