A summer schedule of exciting events: Milan's soul reflected in the Cathedral!

All guided tours for July 2016 at the Duomo

The Cathedral is the sign of an ancient culture, expresses the energy that has been able to draw from the territory in more than half a millennium of history. In fact, when we speak of the Duomo of Milan, we are not only speaking of an extraordinary work of architecture, which counts 108.50 m (the height of the Madonnina from the ground), 3,400 statues, 200 bas-reliefs, 55 stained glass windows and 135 spires, but also of an extraordinary masterpiece of Milanese and European industriousness, a result not only of an artist but the brush strokes of the milanese people, that with emotion, commitment, involvement and dedication from generation to generation have drawn the outline of a unique cathedral.

The Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo offers multiple and special guided tours for the summer season: a new way of thinking forward through the past. 
Retracing the footsteps of the history of the Cathedral, each visitor discovers his own way of visiting Milan and its most precious treasure of faith and art.

WALKING THROUGH THE SPIRES
