Create an itinerary including Duomo di Milano
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 and other Milan attractions into our Milan online trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The highlight is the rooftop. We took the stairs which weren't too strenuous but I was very glad to reach the top! It's the coolest roof top I've ever seen you are literally walking on the sloped...

  • Duomo of Milan is exquisite outside and grandiosas inside. It is best to visit with a tour guide because it has a lot of stories to tell. There are also separate tickets to climb to the roof of Duomo....  more

  • Enjoyed a quick visit to this iconic attraction. Really loved the ability to venture in the rooftop which was surprising and awesome (despite the ongoing restoration work). Views from the top are fantastic. The inside is grand too. Staff were helpful and polite. Although it could benefit from better signage. Access inside to some areas restricted 😏
  • What must amazed me was being walking on the top of the roof, which is not common. The Duomo is big, the architecture of the outside is very impressive and beautiful. The church inside, based on the other churches I have seen before, this one didn’t impressive. As any other European church, of course is beautiful and it’s big, I have seen better ones. But, I think you should go because every perspective is always different and it’s worth it. I took the lift (elevator) to go to the top. This entrance is on the right side of the back of the church. Opposite side where you can buy the tickets. IMPORTANT: for women you tummy needs to be cover and your shoulders. I had a tide dress and it wasn’t a problem. My husband had shorts and a t-shirt and he was fine go inside. The elevator doesn’t go down, it’s only to go up. We took the stairs to come down.
