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.

Amazing views and such a lovely place to explore, would definitely visit again if I return to Milan. The stairs were easy enough to walk up too! Not a winding spiral staircase like some places have, and the staircase is one way, with another one to go back down, so you’re not squeezing past people while going up/down!

Visiting the roof terraces is a great experience that should not be missed. This can also be seen when climbing stairs, because if you run out of breath, you can definitely take a break in between - if there is not too much visitor traffic in the morning or evening hours.

There are a lot of stairs, I've been to other cathedrals in Europe where the ascent is by elevator. The view of the city is beautiful and the aspect of being able to see the decoration of the facade up close. Although the ticket informs that you do not have access to the interior area of the cathedral, to leave you must go inside it and you can take pictures, you cannot get close to the altar but you will be able to see the interior, so I found this ticket interesting as good cost x benefit.
