Duomo Square n.4 (under the arches next to 12 OZ Coffee Joint). Meet the Guide 15 minutes before the starting time.

This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide at the dramatic front of the Milan Duomo, the city’s most iconic landmark. Enjoy views of the spires and expanses of white marble as you contemplate the size of the enormous cathedral.

After receiving your headphones, listen to stories about the Duomo—including how it took almost 600 years to complete—and how it fits into the history of Milan. This masterpiece of Gothic architecture is Italy’s largest cathedral, and one of the biggest in the world.

Make your way to the elevator entrance with your guide, avoiding waiting in the line thanks to your pre-booked ticket, and take the lift up to the first terrace of the cathedral roof. From there, walk around to the front of the Duomo—admiring spires up close—and ascend the last steps to reach the highest part of the rooftop. The golden Madonnina statue atop the highest spire is clearly visible from here, and on a clear day you may even see as far as the Italian Alps.

Descend the steps and elevator to return to the pavement below, and your tour ends where it began outside the Duomo.

Milan Duomo Rooftops
, Jul 2021
Flavia was amazing! Her knowledge of the Duomo was perfectly scaled for my architect husband AND 10 & 11 year old daughters! We only had a short time in Milan- this 1 hour tour was perfect!
Cathedral Terraces plus Milan explained
, Feb 2020
Our guide Charles on Feb 14th was superb. He had so many interesting facts to tell us about the Duomo itself and as many about Milan itself and of the buildings and places to be viewed from so high up.
Scam-dont waste your money
, Oct 2019
This is a cash grab by a company that just wants to steal money. They claim phones didnt work which is a lie. Tour guide nowhere to be found. Probably because the tour doesnt exist. Waste of money which im sure they wont refund.

Fantastic tour! What amazing views and a truly awesome piece of architecture! Totally worth every cent!
Nice guide .. average tour
, Sep 2019
Guide ..whose name we never got, was very engaging but did not seem to have a deep understanding of the history or significance of the cathedral. The ongoing restoration and construction around the cathedral was a bit of a distraction. That said, the Duomo is an incredible structure and just amazed us. The guide redeemed himself by producing a small bag of chocolates for my daughter and her fiancé (who got engaged earlier in the day in Como). Overall, a memorable experience.
Nice but rushed

Disappointed we were rushed not enough time closed early due to an event going on wish we were advised beforehand

Viator did not show up for the tour! We arrived on time and asked around as well and no sign of anyone from viator who knew about the tour.

Dear client, we are sorry to read your bad review, since the tour starts regularly every day. May I ask you to provide us your booking reference in order to verify? thank you!
Awesome tour and hilarious tour guide
, Jun 2019
So beautiful going up to the rooftop of the Duomo and seeing all the sights. The adorable & sassy young lady who gave the tour (forgot her name) was amazing. She had so much knowledge of the Duomo as well as the city, remembered everyone by where they were from, and cracked so many funny jokes & stories. It was enjoyable just listening to her speak great English with a cute Italian accent.
No one showed up to take us on the tour
, Jun 2019
We arrived at designated location and no representative showed up for our tour. The other two tours were wonderful and the guides were great and provided details which you would not be aware of without their local knowledge. I will request refund from Viator and see how that goes.
Visit to duomo cathedral
, Mar 2019
Stunning cathedral. We only went on the rooftop tour on a lovely sunny day - it was breathtaking and the tour guide was brilliant.....
Unfortunate circumstances
, Mar 2019
Due to instructions for meeting not appearing on phone, I missed the tour even though I waited at the elevator from 10:00 a.m. to 10::45 a.m. Ended up buying a second ticket to Ride elevator to the roof. Direct purchase ticket required no waiting and was considerably cheaper. I emailed Viator as conundrum unfolded but received an automatic reply from some other country. Very frustrating and costly experience. I travel frequently and have always avoided using tour companies. This unfortunate experience confirms my commitment to travel independently. On the other hand, visutvis the Duomo roof was the aniciantici highlight of this visit to Milan. The roof experience was totally worth the frustration and even having to pay for two tickets. Rarely can someone get so close the inspiration spirit of all the craftsmen.The Duomo roof is unique and not to be missed. It's remarkably accessible. Several very elderly visitors and some using canes and crutches negotiated the stonework. Glad I went. Disappointed in myself for not trusting myself to buy a ticket in person at the Duomo ticket office.
Knowledgeable guide, amazing views

Our guide Flavia met us as planned and expertly conducted our tour. The tour exceeded our expectations and made our first tour amazing! We loved the views and learning about the history of the Duomo Cathedral.

Serena was charming and very knowledgeable. She pointed out details that were easily overlooked and were her personal favorites, which made it even more interesting. Although the day was very hot, it was definitely worth the hour climbing

Quick tour of the outside and roof of the Duomo. Our guide was very good. She provided lots of details and information about the building and the people who were responsible for building it. Note that the tour does not include a ticket to go inside the cathedral itself.

Amazing tour - there's so many intricate details on the duomo which you wouldn't notice without a guide. The guide spoke really good English and made the experience really enjoyable. It was great to be able to use the skip the line queue to get up to the top in a lift as supposed to using the stairs.
Definitely a worth is experience! I...
