If I did this side trip below the Duomo on my own, I would not have enjoyed or appreciated it. Our guide really explained the significance of the remaining walls,dating around 0 BC/AD.
There were a couple of gold relics there in a case.
Entrance was included in Duomo Pass and stairway is located inside the Duomo.
Following the stairway you get below the Duomo and see early Christian church, which was very interesting visit.
The entrance to this archaeological site is through the Duomo. The visit helped us understand the original layout of the buildings in the Piazza del Duomo, before the cathedral was built. Quite interesting. It was included in our "Duomo with Rooftops" guided visit.
The Baptistry is under the Cathedral. Stage site is really well preserved and curated well. Extremely educational and informative. Wish there were more English descriptions though. When I went it was completely empty, so I could linger at each exhibit. I thought it was great...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
