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.

This is not a fast track enterence ticket, there are two elevators, this is for the other one. Time indicated in the ticket is provisional, you can't enter when indicated, but should wait in line. People who bought walking tickets entered sooner than us, so I recommend you to either buy fast track or walk on foot.

If you don't like stairs or heights, don't book this! Great view from the top, but it is a lot of stairs. There is a different ticket for the same thing with a lift. Some of the roof is being refurbished, so you can't access everything or see in all directions at the moment, but still worthwhile.

Amazing views and such a lovely place to explore, would definitely visit again if I return to Milan. The stairs were easy enough to walk up too! Not a winding spiral staircase like some places have, and the staircase is one way, with another one to go back down, so you’re not squeezing past people while going up/down!
