The visitors will have the opportunity to climb up the inside of the Cathedral’s dome to look closely at the six units frescoed with the images of prophets: Haggai, Hosea, Zechariah, Ezekiel, Micaiah, Geremiah, the lunettes about the episodes of Jesus’s childhood – Announcement to the shepherds, Adoration of the shepherds, Presentation in the temple, The flight into Egypt – the portrait of eight Sibyls and the frieze on the dome tambour. 

It is possible up to the Dome to admire the GUERCINO’S FRESCOES through a path of 136 steps.
