  • Take in the city from the top of its most sacred structure
  • Learn the 600-year-long history of one of Europe's largest cathedrals
  • Continue to the cathedral's museum (entry ticket not included) to complete your visit


Avoid the hassle of buying an entrance ticket to the Milan Duomo on the day by picking one up in advance. By far the most unique feature of the cathedral is its vast terraces, granting a panoramic viewpoint over Milan and a birds-eye perspective on the church itself. With options to challenge yourself by mounting the 250 stairs up to the terraces, or to take a ride on the convenient elevator, the terraces are accessible to all with a desire to see this iconic sight. Once you’re on the terrace, peer out over the city from over 150 feet (ca. 46 meters) above street level while taking in the characteristic rows of white marble spires. An enduring symbol of Milan, the cathedral broke ground in 1386, only to be finished in 1965. Built of stunning marble quarried from the Candoglia region, there are few better examples of Italian Gothic architecture in existence.
