What You Can Expect

Evening Rooftop Tour of Milan's Duomo

Admire the spires of Milan's Cathedral up close

Meet your guide at the entrance of Milan Cathedral, also known as the Duomo. The most exuberant example of Gothic architecture in Italy and the much-loved symbol of the city, Milan Cathedral’s spires, towers, buttresses and statues dominate Piazza del Duomo.

If you’ve chosen to upgrade your tour, follow your guide inside the Duomo for a 30-minute tour of the interior, taking in the vast candlelit nave and spectacular stained-glass windows. Otherwise, set off on the rooftop portion of the tour.

Reduce any waiting time with your prebooked ticket and enjoy a 1-hour guided tour of this Gothic masterpiece. Put on your audio earphones for easy and comfortable access to your live guide’s commentary about the history of the ancient city of Milan and its stunning Duomo, the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete, and is the fifth-largest cathedral in the world and the largest in Italy.

After an entertaining introduction, use the elevator to head up the steepest part of the cathedral to reach the first terrace, saving you 200 steps. Climb the last 50 steps to the highest terrace, and walk along the rooftop to admire the breathtaking skyline. Depending on the season, watch the sunset or see the lights come on in the city below. On a clear evening, you can even see the Italian Alps!

Admire the church’s marble sculptures, spires and flying buttresses, and learn about the secrets behind the many statues. After soaking up the views, walk back down the steps and take the elevator to the ground floor. Your tour concludes just outside the cathedral.

I missed the tour on Oct 9 because the time was changed. Viator's customer service was not helpful, and was unable to resolve the issue. So I showed up at the same meeting place on Oct 11 on the chance that that tour was not filled. It wasn't, and Ms. Donatello allowed me to join at that time. She was a great tour guide, and saved Viator from a very unhappy customer. She deserves some recognition for handling an awkward situation well, and presenting a great image of Viator. Thank you to Ms. Donatello.

We took both the church and the rooftop tours. We enjoyed every second of this tour!!! We learned so much about the church and stain glass window construction. She explained very well the how stain glass windows were made during the olden times and taught us the differences between that and the new ones restored. Because of this tour, every time we entered the churches we next visited, we easily identified what stain glass is original and what is restored! The roof top visit is not to be missed!
