March, a rich calendar of guided tours exploring the Duomo

From the Cathedral's secrets to the most beautiful songs dedicated to Milan

«The combination of delicacy and grandeur along with its stark whiteness give Milan's Duomo the appearance of a many pointed glacier, or of a giant stalactite formation; it's difficult to imagine that it's something built by human hands» - thus wrote Théophile Gautier in 1855. These words express the profound feelings of the poet, feelings which come alive again each day with every person who stops to contemplate the extraordinary beauty of the great Milanese cathedral, the symbol of Milan worldwide. 

Also in March 2016, the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo in Milan offers a rich calendar of themed tours exploring this infinite tale of the people.
