Our legally licensed English speaking Tour Guide will take you to discover the Duomo, one of the most iconic building of Milan, which, with its gold plated statue of the Madonnina (the “Little Virgin Mary”, the affectionate name given by the Milanese to the statue that stands on the top of the Cathedral) represent the true symbol of the city. Is the fourth largest Cathedral in Europe, and it is distinguished by a really long history of construction: its building started more than 600 years ago – in 1386, and ended just in 1965. The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. While walking through the main nave, you will be introduced not just to the history of the church, but also to the history of the city and of Europe, to the artistic and architectural features of the building, to its countless paintings, statues and stained glass windows, but also to its many anecdotes and legends, its pagan elements, and to the many hidden secrets that the place still hides!
