I am always in awe of the opulence and beauty when I visit Catholic churches in Europe. Milan’s Duomo is no exception. From Saints relics to stunning art and architecture to Ambrose’s baptistery where Saint Augustine was baptized in 387 (in archaeological area), this ticket is completely worth it. If you are going to mass, there is a separate free entrance and chapel for you so you can attend mass in peace without crowds and interruption.

I can’t believe we were actually walking on the rooftop of the cathedral. This experience is worth every penny. It was incredible to see so many things up close that you never even knew existed like the statues on top of all the spires.

Fabulous! Very unique, amazing. And efficient process. Great for all ages, including seniors!

It was a lovely experience going up to the rooftop and visiting the Duomo

A great experience with a friendly, highly knowledgeable, guide.
