The most renowned tour of Milan Duomo! Start from the origins, in the Archaeological Area underneath Duomo where the remains of the Baptistery of San Giovanni alle Fonti, the first octagonal-shaped Baptistery in Christianity, are found. Next it’s up inside the Cathedral, with its 52 incredibly tall columns, capitals enriched by a pilgrimage of statues large and small, and the 55 stained-glass windows, making it the most eminent example of the Gothic style in Northern Italy. Finally, when you reach the Rooftops, 70m above the ground, the breathtaking view will take you by surprise… walking among the architecture and precious ornamentation you will feel as though are in a forest of stone, where the artistic decorations enrich the lace-like marble and the statues populate the white spires and vertiginous walls. All this is just a stone's throw from the sky, embraced by the light of the Madonnina, on the roof of the city.
