3500 statues (more than any other Cathedral in the world)
135 spires
The possibility to “touch and enter inside” the Gothic style of the Duomo
An exciting breath taking skyline of Milan
A unique experience: walk on the roof of the church
A stunning atmosphere.

       

What you can expect

The Tour will start in front of the main central door of the Cathedral, where you will meet our licensed English speaking Tour Guide who will give you an entertaining introduction to the monument. Then, you will use the elevator to head up the steepest part of the Cathedral’s stairs to reach the first terrace, saving you 200 steps! The roof consists of a system of sloping and accessible terraces, with connecting walkways and stairs. This lets you reach and almost touch all the flying buttresses, crockets, spires and statues. Walking through them you will see the breath taking skyline of Milan, and your Guide will explain you all the building that you could admire from the top (the dome of the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery, the San Siro Stadium, the Martini’s Terrace, the new modern district of Milan,…), witnessing the life of the city in constant movement and evolution.

  • "Brilliant!!! The best choice! Seeing up close the intricate details of the workmanship as well as the stunning vistas from the rooftop was so worth the climb. There is a lift part of the way but still a lot of stairs. Our guide broke the climb into manageable bites with lots of photo opportunities along the way. Should not be missed."

  • "We got there 15 minutes late. They were very accommodating and we quickly joined the group. The experience was more than the breathtaking views, it was interesting history, great stories, and interesting details you would have missed out on if not for the passionate guide, Ludwig. I don't think anyone should miss this tour if you come to Milan. It is a mix of the new and old, a taste of the culture, with some fabulous picture taking opportunities."

  • "Everything went well on the day of our rooftop experience. Directions to where to meet and time left turned out perfectly. Very informative tour guide and views were terrific and breathtaking. It was difficult to walk the last very steep and narrow 59 steps but very well worth it once you got there. I was very skeptical I could do this at first but so very glad I did."

Während den kids das Abenteuer auf einem Kirchendach rumzulaufen besonders gefiel, erfreuten wir uns an den detaillierten historischen Erläuterungen unserer Tour-Guidin. Sehr informativ und interessant, großartige Ausblicke. Dauer etwa 90min. Kein Anstehen am Lift. Sehr empfehlenswert auch für Familien. "
