  • See all sections of the Duomo with the full-access ticket
  • View stained glass windows and old ruins in the spacious interior of Italy's largest cathedral
  • Learn about the architecture and history of the Duomo with an optional audio guide
Make your own way to the Piazza del Duomo where the spires and towers of Milan's gorgeous cathedral stand tall against the sky. Considered one of the architectural icons of Milan, the Duomo is also one of the largest cathedrals in Europe.

Your package includes a ticket that grants access to all parts of the cathedral, including the terraces, museum, Church of St Gottardo in Corte and the archaeological area plus an elevator pass.

Opt to include an audio guide and hear about the 600-year history of the cathedral and admire panoramic views of the city from more than 150 feet up (45 meters) on the Duomo Terraces, which are made from Candoglia marble. On clear days you can see as far as the Alps and the Apennine Mountains.

Among the 27 halls of the Grande Museo del Duomo, you can take in stained glass windows, tapestries, religious objects and sculptures from the 14th-century Palazzo Reale. Gain a better appreciation of the cultural and spiritual heritage of Milan as you look at the ruins of the Battistero di San Giovanni, which was discovered in 1961 when it was found during excavations. The baptistery was constructed in the 4th century by St. Ambrose and demolished in 1387 to make space for the cathedral.

You can spend as much time as you like at the Duomo with this ticket.

Bad ticket
, May 2020
I purchased this item. When the ticket arrives it explains that the bar code is bad..thus the hassle of finding someone that day to exchange the ticket for something valid...thus to me that is not a "line skip" pass and they have yet to refund me. I bought another pass right from Duomo instead
Awesome architecture

There’s quite a lot of restoration work going on inside the cathedral so it can be a bit noisy so if you are looking for somewhere quiet for prayer maybe this is not the place. However the rooftops are well worth a visit as the exterior of the building is awesome.
Loved the flexibility of self guided.

Because it is a self guided tour, it was so easy to get what we needed from the ticket office. We went straight up to the rooftop and didn’t realize there was a Playlist for highlights up there, so we missed seeing the “monster” gargoyle. But we liked being able to pick and choose while in the cathedral.
Disappointed - Not as Expected

Be sure you have the Fast Pass version of the elevator ride to the terraces otherwise you'll spend 45 minutes in line waiting for the elevator. Also, be prepared to walk down the 143 steps as the elevator pass DOES NOT include a return trip. Crowded - we are loving these cultural treasures to death. Not for those with limited mobility or health issues.
A must-see!!

If you are going to be in Milan, the view from the rooftop of the cathedral is amazing! I recommend using the elevator unless you are used to climbing a lot of stairs. Once you get to the rooftop using the lift, there are additional stairs, so you will still get plenty of exercise. If you schedule the early self-guided tour, be aware that the audio guide equipment is not available until 9:30 a.m.
Totally messed up.

Poor, misleading, inadequate meeting directions. It took three phone calls to find the right person there in getting proper entry tickets.and then were were misdirected to a museum. The man in the office scribbled on the edge of our viator provided tickets and we had to seek help from officials in the church to gain admittance, after standing in line. Jump the line was not accurate, Would never do this tour again and would not recommend it to any one. Way over priced for very little assistance or information.
Awesome to see....

Booked Viator tickets months in advance . On the day E tickets would not open phones and eventually told server problem be refunded in 10 days - have had my money since August ! Tell call cost £3 Never got to see on this day as fast track tickets sold what a waste of precious touring time ! Was extremely disappointed

This is not a 'skip the line' or Fast Track ticket. We were only able to use it for the Rooftops by Elevator portion. There were two masses the day of our tickets which closed the Cathedral for hours and the lines to get into the Cathedral during the available hours were VERY long. By the time we would have reached the front of the line after the first closure, the Cathedral would have been closing again for the second mass. We returned again on the following Saturday morning at 8:30 AM and were able to immediately buy tickets for only 8 euros each and immediately enter the Cathedral, Archaeological Area, and Museum.
