We had an amazing morning with Christina who guided our visit to the Last Supper and Il Duomo. Her knowledge and the interesting things she shared elevated the experience and we would never have enjoyed these locations as much without her. She has a very pleasant presence and we loved the details and background she chose to share with us about the places and people ,and they fascinated us to a point that we will remember them. Our children (age 16 and 20) were not very keen on the idea of this tour but they absolutely loved it and shared with us afterwards that they would not have missed it for the world and were grateful for this experience. I think it helped a lot that this was a private tour. We definitely recommend this private tour, and the high quality gelato was a pleasant ending. Grazie!

Amazing experience! Lots of scaffolding at the moment spoils it a bit for photos. Suggest early morning. We had 10am went up straight away , after about an hour and a bit being inside, queue to get in was horrendous!!

Worked perfectly, the cathedral is beautiful, it's worth it, it has the wow effect. Always recommended, we booked it alone with an audio guide.

Entering without queuing is the best. It should be better indicated

Everything was good with clear instructions on where to go.
