    Very informative and interesting. The guide was very friendly and happy to answer questions the whole way round! We got to go on the rooftops and there the guide left us so we could enjoy the views and head back into the cathedral at our own pace. Generally lovely experience all around.

    Easy to find the guide, our guide (I think called Lena) was really knowledgeable and told us interesting facts. There are certain items forbidden from the Duomo (such as ceramics) so be careful if shopping beforehand. You also take a trip to the rooftop via lift & 52 stairs and it is then stairs all the way down - you can choose not to go up if you don’t want to.

    Had a great tour with Viktor. The meeting point was easy to find and the tour started on time without any hiccups. Viktor got us into the Duomo just following a funeral service so we had the entire place to ourselves for a short period of time. The tour was very informational and we were shown additional photos to help shed light on some of the intricacies of the building. The lift access to the roof was easy and the time on the roof was terrific. I highly recommend this tour. We were not able to see the Duomo Museum on the following day as it was closed for holiday but that would have been a nice addition to our already great tour (and it was covered with the ticket for the Duomo).
