Dominating Milan's central square is the magnificent Gothic Duomo (cathedral), the largest church in Italy.

We offer various guided tours of the cathedral and the amazing open rooftops.
“The guide was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. She respected the privacy of patrons which I believe is important since it is their church. What cool info about the roof construction and endless repairs. Excellent tour with Must See views!”

“Highly Recommended! Awesome view from the top! One of the highlights of our Milan vist (the other one is the Last Supper also booked with tickitaly). Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and has a very pleasant personality which made the visit even more awesome!”

Milan Cathedral & Rooftop Tours

Before Dan Brown it was Milan's gloriously Gothic cathedral (Duomo) that topped the must-see list, not Da Vinci's Last Supper, but it's perhaps not widely known just how fascinating the rooftops of the cathedral are, and what an unequalled view of Milan can be had from up on high.

The Duomo di Milano is the 5th largest church in the world and took over 6 hundred years to complete after construction began in 1386, replacing the older church and baptistry (you can still see the archaeological remains under the cathedral).

The exterior of the cathedral is incredible - it's claimed that it has more statues adorning it than any other building in the world. To get a full sense of quite how ornate the architecture is, a visit to the rooftops is necessary, and from there you can take in the incredible detail, the amazing views over Milan and on to distant mountains, and the Madonnina, the famed statue of Mary atop the cathedral's highest spire.

All tours are fully-inclusive and all are skip-the-line. We have some visitor information and history on this page.

The buttons below will give greater detail on the tickets and tours we offer throughout the year, but some only run certain days of the week, some are seasonal, so do use our calendar to check availability!

Opening times

The cathedral is open seven days a week and has typical opening hours of 9.00 AM until 6.00 PM, with last entry an hour before closing time. Clearly this is a working church, and times will be amended according to the liturgical schedule.

The rooftops are also typically open seven days a week, from 9.00 AM until 7.00 PM, again with last entry an hour before closing time. From Fridays to Sundays opening is extended to 8.00 PM (last entry 7.00 PM).
