What You'll Do
  • Learn about the construction of Milan’s renowned cathedral
  • Enjoy amazing views of the Terraces and the city of Milan
  • Admire the beautiful stained glass windows and sculptures
Overview
Discover the secrets of the Duomo with a skilled guide from the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo. Skip the lines waiting to enter and visit the cathedral and the rooftops and marvel at the views of the spires, the statues and the city of Milan.
What to Expect
Your 90-minute skip-the-line tour begins in the archeological area underneath the Milan Cathedral. Discover the Baptistery of St. John and the Church of Santa Tecla.

The Church of Santa Tecla was built during the 4th century and demolished in the Middle Ages to make space for the cathedral. The site was discovered by archeologists in 1961.

You’ll see a magnificent example of early octagonal construction with the Baptistery and learn about the life in Milan during the Roman era, when the city was the capital of the Empire.

Enter the cathedral and you’ll be standing inside the most iconic monument of the city of Milan and one of the largest churches in the world. With its 3,400 statues, 55 stained glass windows, spectacular altars and paintings, the Duomo is the most important example of Gothic style in northern Italy.

The elevator takes you up to the roof, where you’ll see the spires and sculptures from up close. Climb the 50 steps to reach the highest terraces and take a walk near the main spire, where the golden statue of the Virgin is located.

Enjoy magnificent views of the city and discover monuments and landmarks with your guide. On clear days, you’ll even be able to see the Alps!
