Milan Duomo tour + free optional virtual reality experience

Meet your licensed tour guide in Piazza del Duomo and start visiting the impressive gothic Cathedral. Inspect the endless details of its façade and admire its statues, spires, bizarre gargoyles and many other oddities. After an overview of the Cathedral outside, take your chance to enhance your tour with a time travel! Wear your 3D headsets and dive into the past so you can visit the Piazza del Duomo as it was in the 18th century thanks to a short 3D Virtual Reality reproduction of the square (it’s a free included option).

Then enjoy fast access to the largest Italian cathedral and marvel at this imposing monument. Your tourist guide is ready to focus on the countless statues, the decorations, the colourful stained-glass windows that tireless craftsmen designed along the centuries and be amazed while hearing about the stories of the “Holy Nail” from Jesus’ True Cross or the Sundial Trail and its zodiac signs. Stroll along the aisles, reach the main altar and pay homage to the tomb of Saint Charles Borromeo, one of Milan holy patrons, host inside the crypt below.

Now have a 15-minutes break before you enjoy the stunning views of Milan from above! You can spend this free time at your disposal to descend to the underground archaeological site and discover an unexpected early Christian architecture set down the cathedral, including an octagonal baptistery and ancient tombs.

Rooftop tour of Milan Duomo

Make your way to the elevator entrance with your expert local guide, take the lift and enjoy the unforgettable experience of walking on the roof of the magnificent Duomo Cathedral. The overall size of this Gothic architecture is impressive and its flying buttresses and the white marble make it a one-of-a-kind! On the roof of Italy’s largest cathedral, and one of the biggest in the world, you can enjoy exciting views of Milan and on a clear day you may even see as far as the Italian Alps, the mountains separating Italy from Switzerland!! Over 3.400 statues and 135 spires await to be unveiled and it is definitely best seen from above!

Climb nearly 50 steps to reach the highest level on the roof and be ready to admire stunning views of the Milanese skyline, including the brand new upcoming skyscarapers. End your visit admiring the golden statute of the Virgin Mary, shining bright on top of the major spire. Still not tired?
