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!!!

Prive gidstour aan de duomo voor ons alleen!

Op 8 december 2018 bezochten wij de Duomo van Milaan met de rooftoptour die wij hier de dag zelf nog boekten. Er werd een gids geregeld en we werden die dag nog telefonisch gecontacteerd ter bevestiging. De gids was mooi op tijd was én ze was speciaal voor ons naar de Duomo gekomen. Want wat bleek: wij waren de enige klanten. Dit resulteerde in een zeer volledige gidstour van dit mooie monument met heel veel info en de mogelijkheid om veel vragen te stellen. De Duomo is zeker de moeite waard om te bezoeken in deze tijd van het jaar, heel mooi uitzicht vanop het dak. Een echte aanrader!
