See Milan from above on a 1-hour tour that takes you to the rooftop terraces of the Duomo. Meet your guide in Piazza del Duomo and admire the cathedral’s façade, its statues, spires, and gargoyles. Skip the lines at the ticket office and make your way to the elevator entrance with your guide. Ride the elevator to the top and walk along the roof of the magnificent cathedral. Take in spectacular views of Milan. On a clear day you can see as far as the Italian Alps – the mountains separating Italy from Switzerland. Climb nearly 50 steps to reach the highest level and see the golden statute of the Virgin Mary, shining bright atop the main spire.
