In this small chapel you are kidnapped by the description of the guide while you look at the frescoes that contains together with his most precious treasure, enclosed in his tabernacle.

Informative tour
Jan. 2018 • Couples
Visited in January 2018. 8 Euros. Tour of the Chapel was short at 30 minutes but very informative and interesting as we saw and were told of the history concerning the frescoes. When this has been completed the "Iron Crown" is then revealed and again details (part fact and part myth) are given. When the lights are dimmed to show the crown and its history I did find this atmospheric.
Most certainly I would recommend the tour. We did not visit the museum but did visit the Duomo itself, which again is well worth a look.

Fascinating! A must see

You can enter the chapel only with a 30 minute guided tour. 8 euros well spent as the guide explains the various frescoes along with the story of teodolinda. The crown will be shown last.
I recommend booking the tour in advance because places are limited. There are various tours throughout the day in english too

A very important place to visit
Sep. 2016 • Couples
The Dome at all is beautiful, but inside - on the left side - the "cappella di Teodolinda" is more than fantastic! After the restoration of frescos the chapel became a unique pearl!
We were happy because we arrived in time and have got the guided tour at 2 pm - it was really a great experience.The guide was excellent! The famous historic iron crown has made an unusual impression. Of course, no photo or video. After the chapel we visited the museum - breathtaking...!!!! Everybody should see it!

Splendid 15th Century frescoes
Jun. 2016 • Couples
The Theodolinda Chapel is located in Monza's Cathedral. Theodolinda was a Lombard Queen renowned for her charitable good works. The chapel walls are decorated with 15th Century paintings depicting events in the life of Queen Theodolinda. They are painted in the technique known as "al fresco" where the artist paints on fresh plaster which has preserved its colours wonderfully well. The paintings are allegorical as well, illustrating the passage of power from the Visconti family to the Sforzas in the 15th Century. The chapel also contains the Iron Crown of Lombardy which was used to crown the Holy Roman Emperor and is, therefore, extremely historic and important. You have to pay to light the chapel and more to see the crown that is reputed to contain two of the nails used to crucify Christ.

Amazing

The Chapel of Theodelinda is located inside the Cathedral of Monza.
The chapel was built in the 13th century and it is fully painted with a frescoes, work by Ambrogio and Gregorio Zavattari (1444).
The frescoes tell the history of life of Theodelinda: her marriage with Autari (589), (king of the Lombards, son of king Cleph) and her second marriage with Agilulf (591).
In the Chapel is there also the famous Iron Crown of Lombardy used for the coronation rite for the kings of Italy.
