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.

  • I have about 20 extra pounds and I walked up to the top without problems. Great view, worth the time.

  • If you are in or near Milan, then please take some time to go and visit this magnificent cathedral right in the city centre of Milan. Take the time to walk around outside and look at the thousands of intricate carvings and statues and see just how much detail there is in each and everyone of them and there are a lot of them. Inside is just as majestic with its large ceilings and huge stained glass windows. But remember, if you want to go inside, prepare to queue and please come dressed appropriately as they will turn you away if not. You may think, I've seen one Cathedral, I've seen them all. But this is something really special.
  • A literal must see attraction if in Milan. The history matched with modern life in the plaza shows the rich past of Milan with the classic Milan style and shops. Rooftop is beautiful. Inside stunning. The stain glass was best I've seen. Absolutely awe inspiring being in the cathedral.
