Full description
Avoid the hassle of buying an entrance ticket to the Milan Duomo on the day by picking one up in advance. By far the most unique feature of the cathedral is its vast rooftop, granting a panoramic viewpoint over Milan and a birds-eye perspective on the church itself. With options to challenge yourself by mounting the 250 stairs up to the rooftop, or to take a ride on the convenient elevator, the rooftop is accessible to all with a desire to see this iconic sight. Once you’re on the rooftop, peer out over the city from over 150 feet above street level while taking in the characteristic rows of white marble spires. An enduring symbol of Milan, the cathedral broke ground in 1386, only to be finished in 1965. Built of stunning marble quarried from the Candoglia region, there are few better examples of Italian Gothic architecture in existence.

We bought the access by elevator option but somehow ended up on the stairs on the way down. Glad we did not climb the stairs up as they are narrow and never ending. The rooftop was interesting, seeing some of the intricate work up close. You do not get a sense of the enormity of the cathedral from the rooftop so a trip inside is recommended. It was cool to be on the roof but I preferred the visit inside.

This experience was amazing!! Despite the long line to enter (even though I had a pre purchased ticket), it was definitely worth the wait! The architecture, the views, the atmosphere was amazing! You see things from a completely different perspective! Highly recommend!

This was a great experience. The detail of the church and views of the city were amazing. I went with my two grown children in their 20's, who also enjoyed the experiencing the Duomo rooftop. I would recommend this activity and company for tours and booking tickets. I will definitely use them again.
