What people are saying about Lombardy

Our guide, Mareka was excellent. We had a great experience because she made sure our small group felt a part of her historical story and explanations. Not only was our guide excellent but being in a small group is much better then a huge number of people.

Although taking the last entry time (5pm) it is advisable to get your audio tour before 4pm and see the cathedral first. Then go up to the terraces and roof for pre sunset hour. You must return your audio equipment before 6pm.

Victor was great. He was waiting for us on time and it wasn’t hard at all to find him. He gave a lot of very interesting details about the Cathedral. We enjoyed our visit a lot. It was worth it.

Guide Renata was wonderful. She made us feel the spirit of La Scala. Many thanks!

Ticketing process was a breeze. Extremely convenient. The museum was great.
