The fifth-largest cathedral in the world, Duomo di Milano is a marvel of Gothic architecture. Climb up to the roof and enjoy arguably the most spectacular views of the city, visible between the cathedral's Gothic spires. Constructed between 1386 and 1965, this massive church is known for its white marble, hundreds of spires, thousands of statues on its exterior, and a buttressed facade. You can take photos inside the cathedral if you buy a special wristband at the entrance. You can reach the roof, which is open during daylight hours, via elevator or 250 stairs. Make advance reservations if you'd like a guided sunset tour of the spires. Put Duomo di Milano into our Milan holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Milan.

  • It is worth visiting, EUR 2 visit ' Cathedral and Museum, 11euros added to possibility of walk up to the roof of the Cathedral; the Museum is outside the scope of the Cathedral interior is worthy of a visit.

  • A must see while visiting Milan. €15.50 gets you a ticket to see everything they have to offer and access to the roof. You can buy tickets online so you don't have to wait in line. We waited about 20 mins for tickets which wasnt too bad. Word of advice especially for ladies visiting in summer time... While standing in line we overheard a couple girls being told they would not be allowed in because their shorts were too short. Shorts are allowed (we were wearing them) but they will deny you access if they feel they are too short. If I'm not mistaken your shoulders have to be covered too. Just a heads up. Enjoy
  • Very beautiful place. But specially for me I was did't felt the "Holy" energy as in other place it was... (For example in Vatican, Cathedral of Saint Peter there is something Divine...). Some very sensitive people who felt to strong energy will understand me.. But from touristic views - "must see"! Is amazing Architecture and great view from the roof
  • This is THE attraction of Milano. You can't pass close to the city without planning a visit. Incredible outside it will surprise you from the inside. In a nice day, don't miss the possibility to visit the roof from where you will have an amazing and unique view of the city... in some days you will even see the Alps.
  • Wow, what a site to see. In constant amazing walking all around this massive and beautiful cathedral. All Marble, which in itself is an accomplishment. The fact that it took 600 years to complete is another story. So many statues it is overwhelming.
  • My family visited Duomo Church in Sept/2015. As my daughter was in a wheel chair., we were appreciative and thankful that the lady ticketing staff had kindly made special arrangement to help us access through the backlift & arranging a young lady by the name of Marie as our escort/guide. We could accessed the rooftop and enjoyed the scenic view surrounding the church. Marie was v. patient and explained the history and background of Duomo church in English. We had enjoyed the tour greatly especially my daughter. Thank you for the beautiful memory. Our Love to the lady ticketing staff, Marie and all the kind staffs at Duomo Church.
