Private tour of the duomo for us alone!

On December 8, 2018 we visited the Duomo of Milan with the rooftop tour that we booked here on the day itself. A guide was arranged and we were contacted by phone that day for confirmation. The guide was right on time and she had come to the Duomo especially for us. Because as it turned out: we were the only customers. This resulted in a very complete guide tour of this beautiful monument with a lot of information and the opportunity to ask many questions. The Duomo is definitely worth a visit at this time of year, very nice view from the roof. Highly recommended!

Very interesting tour, the guide was very prepared.

The group was small, so we had the chance to go deeper with the Duomo history. The view from up above was amazing, I was so impressed by the Duomo architecture. Thanks to our tickets we didn't wait to go up to the rooftop. For sure, I would recommend the tour!!!
