    Small Group Tour of Milan's Cathedral & Rooftop

Small Group Tour of Milan's Cathedral & Rooftop

  • City: Milan
  • Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Overview

If you want to get better acquainted with Milan, first you must see the Duomo, one of the largest and most famous cathedrals in the world. This skip-the-line, small group tour leads you inside the Duomo where your licensed tour guide will reveal all the secrets of this scared building. After viewing the artworks in the Duomo's interior and the unexpected archaeological ruins located in its underground, you will ascend to the rooftop of this amazing Gothic cathedral. Here, from a height of about 230 feet, you will have a wonderful view of the flying buttresses and the 135 pinnacles with their wealth of decoration and remarkable statuary.

The roof is formed by slabs of Candoglia marble from Lake Maggiore, and the total roof area is over 86,000 square feet that can be visited in its entirety. Wide open areas interspersed with long corridors offer a fascinating and ever-changing view over the city. On a clear day, you can admire both the Italian and the Swiss Alps.

The largest section of rooftop has an area of about 14,530 square feet, covering the cathedral's central nave. Its lateral supports are crowned by a series of pinnacles, while its central (and tallest) spire is topped by a golden statue of the beloved Madonnina, symbol of the city of Milan.

After enjoying the breathtaking views from atop this Gothic masterpiece, you will head back downstairs where the tour ends with ice cream and a surprise lucky ritual.
