  • Milan Cathedral and Rooftop Ticket

    1. Milan Cathedral and Rooftop Ticket

    Discover the symbol of Milan with your access-all-areas ticket to the Duomo, and see the 600-year-old cathedral from different perspectives. One of the largest cathedrals in Italy and Europe, the Milan Duomo is the patrimony of the Milanese people and humanity. Deeply linked to the teachings of the bishops who succeeded on St. Ambrose’s chair, the cathedral is the mother Church of the Diocese, having a symbolic role both in the life of the city and in relation with the Diocese.

  • Milan Cathedral: Rooftop Terraces Ticket (No Church Access)

    2. Milan Cathedral: Rooftop Terraces Ticket (No Church Access)

    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.

    It was an amazing experience and gave a better sense of the massive size and detail of the church.
