Brilliant - it wasn't dark as in the photo but it was very interesting. the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Be prepared for lots of slopes, narrow stairways and some very narrow spirals though!

A totally different view of the cathedral and the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the time spent on the roof and the evening time allowed us to enjoy the fading colours of Milan
