Full description
Meet your licensed tour guide in Piazza del Duomo and make your way to the elevator entrance, where you will take the lift to enjoy the unforgettable experience of walking on the rooftop of the magnificent Duomo Cathedral. The overall size of this Gothic architecture is impressive and its flying buttresses and the white marble make it one-of-a-kind. Climb nearly 50 steps to reach the highest level on the roof and be ready to admire stunning views of the Milanese skyline, including the brand new upcoming skyscrapers. On the roof of Italy’s largest cathedral, and one of the biggest in the world, enjoy exciting views of Milan. On a clear day you may even see as far as the Italian Alps, the mountains separating Italy from Switzerland. Over 3.400 statues and 135 spires await to be unveiled and it is definitely best seen from above! End your visit admiring the golden statue of the Virgin Mary, shining bright on top of the Major spire. Then, have the incredible privilege of skipping the lines outside the Cathedral and to enter without any further wait, directly from a special entrance from the rooftop (the descent might be done by the stairs). Your guide is ready to amaze you, focusing on the countless statues, decorations and colorful stained-glass windows that tireless craftsmen designed along the centuries. Be amazed while hearing about the stories of the “Holy Nail” from Jesus’ True Cross or the Sundial Trail and its zodiac signs.

Breathtakingly impressive

Mooue tour. The Duomo is already impressive by nature, but you have to book the roof, highly recommended! Nice guide, Clementina a proud Milanese, with a lot of knowledge. We were lucky that a group of 8 people had canceled, making it a private tour for the three of us. A cherry on the cake.

Valeria was an excellent guide—so glad we took both the rooftop and inside the Duomo tours. To not go inside would have been a mistake.
