Highlights

Live a memorable experience walking through the naves of the DUOMO CATHEDRAL, one of the largest churches in the world and the true symbol of the city of Milan, together with the chance to climb up to ITS ROOFTOPS and enjoy a fantastic panoramic view over Milan, and beyond, to the distant “ring” of Alps surrounding the city. Enjoy an amazing and unique (there are no other churches in the world offering this opportunity) experience walking on the rooftops of the majestic Duomo Cathedral, after having visited its inside: it’s definitely worth the Tour!

– Statues (more than any other Cathedral in the world), spires and gargoyles
– Colourful stained glass windows, monumental altars and tombs
– Holy relics and enthralling rituals
– 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.

 

Description

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 enter inside the Duomo and, while walking through the main nave, you will be introduced not just to the history of the church, but also to the history of the city and of Europe, to the artistic and architectural features of the building, to its countless paintings, statues and stained glass windows, but also to its many secrets and legends, its Pagan elements, and to its many secrets that the Duomo still
hides!

The second part of the tour will take you at the elevator’s entrance, so you could head up the steepest part of the Cathedral’s stairs to reach the first terrace, saving you from 200 strenuous 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 breathtaking skyline of Milan.
Your guide will point out all the buildings that you can admire from the top, such as
the dome of the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery, the San Siro Stadium, the Martini’s Terrace, the new modern district of Milan,…), while witnessing the life of the city in constant
movement and evolution.
