A wealth of beauty and ancient secrets to be revealed: all of the guided tours of the Duomo

Tours of the Veneranda Fabbrica offered throughout the month of April 2016

“It is our Duomo, it is the church of our elders, it is the home of Milan, it is all marble, it is big, it is beautiful(...).if clear skies, like those sometimes seen on mornings in April and May,return, what a joy for those one hundred sugary spires that pierce the air, tickled by the very first rays of sun as it illuminates their tips! The sun lights up the stained glass as well; bringing red, yellow, green, and violet flowers to life on the pillars, on the floor, on the altars. Under a ray of light you appear, blessed Madonna of our Duomo! You who are the mother of us all!”. 
These lines by Emilio de Marchi express the emotion with which the people of Milan and visitors from around the world feel united with the Duomo of Milan as they contemplate its infinite grandeur. Just one glance at the city's most precious treasure and the day takes on a new light. The Madonna watches over and protects her children. The Duomo is the home of Milan!In April the Veneranda Fabbrica offers many themed tours which allow visitors to explore and admire the Cathedral's extraordinary beauty, from its ancient origins, to curious details about its history, all the way to evocative sunsets and unique views that can be enjoyed only from the Duomo's terraces.
