Pass By: Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Meet your guide in mid-afternoon outside the Piazza del Duomo. After entering the huge church, your licensed English-speaking tour guide will lead you downstairs to visit the hidden unexpected archaeological evidence of a building which was there before the Duomo was built, i.e. parts of an older church, an octagonal baptistery and tombs. Then, after coming up in the Cathedral, your guide will teach you something special about Milan's most renowned curiosities from the sundial trail to the ritual of the Holy Nail, to the story of the Apostle who was skinned alive and much more. After being inside the Duomo, you will reach the Terraces of the Cathedral by elevator. Please note that there is no skip-the-line available for the elevator rides. After just fifty steps you will arrive to a breathtaking panoramic view over the city and you will feel like you literally have Milan at your feet. During this tour you will have time to take memorable pictures of the spires, to the new shining skyscrapers, to the iconic medieval towers and have a closer look at the incredible sculptures populating the Duomo and representing mysterious animals, monsters and other peculiar subjects. You'll take the elevator downstairs, and the tour will continue outside, by flanking the Duomo, then by visiting the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a magnificent and luxury 19th century shopping mall. Here, enjoy the sweet end of your fun and informative small-group tour of Milan in the form of a fragrant coffee and a lucky surprise ritual.
