Here at Walkabout Tours, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that we provide a wide range of Milan tours. And a trip to Milan simply wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Duomo – Italy’s largest church (as St Peter’s is technically in The Vatican, not Italy) and the fourth largest church in the world! Milan Cathedral is called Duomo di Milano in Italian, which just means ‘Church of Milan’. The Italian name for the church is why the structure is often simply referred to as the Duomo. They first started building this epic cathedral in 1386, and different sections were added gradually, over the years. The Duomo was only considered ‘complete’ in 1965! This Duomo di Milano Tour is worth visiting in its own right, but it’s great when combined with a more general tour, such as our Free Milan Walking Tour or our Private Milan Tour.
Skip-the-line access to the Duomo
Find out the history of Milan’s most famous building and admire the stunning architecture. This 2-hours 30-minute Duomo tour will tell you the cathedral’s story, while also allowing you to skip the lines. Admire the Duomo’s exteriors, the beautiful interior ornamentations, and climb to its rooftop on the elevator to enjoy a truly breath-taking view of Milan.
On clear days, from the terrazza you’ll be able to see beyond Milan, to the snow-capped peaks of the Alps. You will also be able to see the famous Madonnina, the gold-coloured statue of Mary standing atop the Duomo’s highest spire. As well as giving you the history of the Duomo, your experienced tour guide will take you through the almost countless artworks that decorate this incredible gothic masterpiece. After the tour, you will be able to visit the Duomo Museum and San Gottardo Church on your own. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about visiting the Duomo or any aspect of this Duomo tour.
Shorts and sleeveless tops are not allowed inside the church. Knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women. You risk refused entry if you fail to comply with these dress requirements.

The staircase to reach the highest terrace is narrow.

In a semi-private tour you share your guide with a few other tour goers. As our groups are always kept small, all participants will still have plenty of opportunity to interact with our guide.
Meet your guide in Piazza Duomo in front of 900 Museum. Look for the guide with yellow WALKABOUT umbrella, put on your headsetss and start your tour. Admire the beauty of this Gothic Cathedral, from the outside, characterized by height and dramatic ornamentation with over 3,400 statues and thousands of individual spires.
70 meters high, right in the middle of the 135 spiers, you will find yourself in front of a splendid view of the city skyline: on one side the new skyscrapers of the Isola district and, in the days of clear skies, the snow-capped Alps; on the other side the rooftops of Milan and of course the below Piazza del Duomo always teeming with life.
Admire the Duomo's interiors, from the bronze portals, magnificent and decorated in alto relievo, to the stained glass windows that tell a scene or a story.
