Stop At: Duomo di Milano, Piazza del Duomo, 20121 Milan Italy

Join us on this child-friendly tour of the Doumo in Milan for a wonderful 2-hours which will take you from floor level to the lofty heights of the Cathedral's roof.

Milan's splendid Duomo Cathedral is one of the largest in the world after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and the Siviglia Cathedral in Seville.

The tour starts at the entrance to the Duomo where the children will be fascinated by the magnificent central doorway which is carved with beautiful Gothic floral reliefs.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Duomo di Milano, Piazza del Duomo, 20121 Milan Italy

It is almost impossible to adequately describe the inside of the Basilica, it has to be seen! Forty columns divide the internal space into five naves and light shines in from the fifty-five stained glass windows that were started in the 4th century but not completed until the 20th century.

This Gothic cathedral has everything; rare marble, "stories" painted on the colourful stained glass windows and the children will love to "spot the ugliest gargoyle"! There is so much to keep the children enthralled that 2-hours will pass very quickly in a perfect mix of education and fun.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Terrace on the Duomo, Piazza del Duomo 14, 20122 Milan Italy

There is a lift to take you to the Duomo Terraces. As you walk the rooftop you can see the remarkable inter-twining of arches, flying buttresses (where rainwater is hidden), towering pinnacles and magnificent statues. At 4.16 metres high the golden statue of the Madonnina is the enduring Symbol of Milan; she looks over and protects the city.

Take a little time to sit and enjoy Milan's skyline. From the Duomo rooftop you get the best view in the city of the ancient Duomo Square and Galleria which sit side by side in perfect harmony with the city's more modern skyscrapers.

Duration: 1 hour

I was delighted to know about a family-friendly tour to the Duomo. We met our tour guide, Katia, who was extremely friendly. She greeted my daughter with small gifts that excited her through the tour. The Duomo is extremely interesting and there are so many details but Katia managed to show us all highlights. Part of the tour is to visit the roof, which I highly recommend. On the roof, Katia gave us a lot of interesting information about Milan too. Overall, the tour was very interesting and organized. And our tour guide Katia was patient, friendly and knowledgeable.
