Excellent access. I didn't realise aboutvtge Porta di Cielo tour, but the ticket desk kindly let me purchase that separately. Very seamless, the process for redeeming the voucher was clearly marked and well stewared. Very good overall.

You can get tickets in the crypt. Then you can see the Cathedral, Museum, Kryta, Baptistery and Facciatone. It's worth queuing for the panoramic view. The view over the city is unique. Cathedral is magnificent and beautiful.

make it clearer where it is exactly you have to go to exchange your voucher .Meeting point implies you are doing a tour Perhaps change that to state where you can exchange

Very competent and friendly Guide, and that is what counts! Coordination of Date and Time by the Office somehow caotic. Cost us 10 minutes of our 200€ tour.

Picking up tickets wasn't a problem, everything went very quickly... We really liked the place.
