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.

Great views of the plaza , the spires and the city. It was a lot of fun . The experience is about 25 min in total. We chose the walk up ticket. You may want to consider the elevator if you cannot make the walk to the top. Saw a couple of folks struggle.

Since it was off season, I made a reservation just to take the elevator without prioritizing, but there was no waiting time, so I was fine with the result. The roof was half-restored, but the roof is filled with fine sculptures that haven't missed any details. I was able to see the statue of Mary overlooking the city up close and it was fun to overlook the city of Milan. The stairs may be enjoyable for young people, but we recommend that you use the sightseeing time with the elevator meaningfully because the elderly and the hot season are tough.

The truth is that going up to the terrace of the cathedral was amazing, I loved it, the views are great and there is more route than I thought, the bad thing is that I understood that with this ticket it was also valid to enter the duomo but no, I think not is well specified. And the stairs are not as many as it seems, climbing them on foot also has its charm
