An Amazing View - Walking on Milan Duomo Rooftops - 1 hour

Rapid confirmation.

This one hour tour is led in English by an expert, English-speaking guide, with the assistance of an audioguide head set. As well as the breathtaking skyline, you'll get a unique insight into the spires and sculptures of the Duomo, as well as the history and legends of Milan's main landmarks.

Please note that although this tour does have priority entrance, some queueing may be necessary due to intensified security procedures.

By booking in advance you will bypass any queues and will get onto the roof via a special (reserved for pre-bookers) lift at the south side of the cathedral. This elevator holds a maximum of 7 people at one time and takes you to the first terrace, saving you 250 steps! We'll then climb the last 82 steps to the highest terrace.

The rooftop visit is not available for disabled visitors, and you may not take animals with you. The staircase is narrow and of smooth marble, so you are advised to wear comfortable, rubber-soled shoes, and to wear a hat to protect yourself from the sun. Please note that there are no toilet facilities or bars, so you are advised to bring water!
