Visiting the Duomo of Milan | Practical Information & Tips
For 13€ you can zip up to the top of the Duomo of Milan in a lovely, comfortable lift. For €8 you could drag yourself up all 165 steps (can you tell which I would recommend?).
9:00 to 23:00 daily (this may change once the Expo is over).
- Pick a crystal-clear day, preferably with at least some wind, to make the most of the views.
- Make your way up 30 minutes before sunset to witness some spectacular changes in the scenery.
- Arm yourself with plenty of patience and a thick skin - the walkways are narrow and everyone is up there to get the best shots, so elbows are sharp and tempers short.
- Taking small children up to the roof is totally fine - our toddler loved all the arches - but you do of course have to keep a very close eye on them.
