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.

Fantastic to be able to walk on the rooftop of this grand cathedral! We bought tickets to the stairs, and it was a steep climb, but totally doable. As you go down again you enter the church and is thus allowed a sneak peak of the interior as well. So don’t buy tickets to go inside, if you aren’t very interested, and want to take the tour.

The elevator process was very easy. You walk up to the access on the left side of the Duomo (if you’re facing it head on) and it’s towards the back. They’ll scan you and search your bags. Masks are required at this time. We arrived at 9:30AM but the crowds were still very busy for this time of day. I wish there were earlier time slots but understand that there may not be any staff working.

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.
