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

    7. 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.

Choose this tour as the first thing you do in Milan. Many highlights of the city and areas of interest are shown. Of course the Doumo and Last Supper were amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and offered many great tips about Milano.

The organization of the tour was great. Guide arrived ahead of time and tour started exactly at 15:00. Guide had high level of knowledge and shared a lot of details. She answered all our questions and was very patient.

Excellent tour with Victor. We enjoyed the history he gave about the Cathedral. With such a vast building we feel we needed a pro to experience it properly. Well worth the money.

Wir hatten Glück und waren alleine mit dem Guide, der sehr ausführlich und detailiert in einem guten Englisch uns informiert hat.
