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 dramatic front of the Milan Duomo, the city’s most iconic landmark. Enjoy views of the spires and expanses of white marble as you contemplate the size of the enormous cathedral.

After receiving your headphones, listen to stories about the Duomo — including how it took almost 600 years to complete — and how it fits into the history of Milan. This masterpiece of Gothic architecture is Italy’s largest cathedral, and one of the biggest in the world.

Make your way to the elevator entrance with your guide, avoiding waiting in the line thanks to your pre-booked ticket, and take the lift up to the first terrace of the cathedral roof. From there, walk around to the front of the Duomo — admiring spires up close — and ascend the last steps to reach the highest part of the rooftop. The golden Madonnina statue atop the highest spire is clearly visible from here, and on a clear day you may even see as far as the Italian Alps.

Descend the steps and elevator to return to the pavement below, and your tour ends where it began outside the Duomo.

Great tour! I learned a lot about the history. The view from the top was amazing. The timing of the tour still has it daylight outside so you won't need a flash. You also won't see the building lights as it was still too light outside. But it was a great tour. You will not be touring inside the duomo. It's all outside so wear some comfortable shoes and prepare to be awed when you reach the roof.

The tour guide did a great job describing the construction of the duomo as we went to the top. Once there, our guide shared more valuable information about the duomo and the history of Milan while we got to see the entire city from a unique perspective. It and #39;s a must do tour!

Great thing to do..Guide was very knowledgable. The lift to the top made it easy to get to, just about 30 steps to the highest point, views were awesome and a must if you are in Milan

Went to Milan with my mum and daughter as a birthday treat for my daughter. Pre booked this and it was great. Easy to find the guide at the designated meeting point. We had headphones so that we could hear. The guy was fab, really knew his stuff and it was very interesting. Building is spectacular!

Loved this tour even though it was raining, it was truly worth learning about the Cathedral and all of it's quirks.

This was incredible. Our guide was very passionate and informative. The walk along the rooftop was the most spectacular especially on a clear day when we could see to the mountain range. The views over the city were breathtaking.
