On Top of the Duomo
Exploring the Duomo Interior
We start and end near the Duomo (including going inside).
If you have any sense of vertigo, we would not recommend this tour for you. We will spend over 45 minutes on the rooftop of the Duomo which is about 150 ft high.
We will go in a lift. There are two lifts which access the rooftop.
It is not a walking intensive tour however the rooftop has narrow passageways and would not be suitable for wheelchairs. Feel free to email us for other possible options.
This walk is not a part of our official family program. That said, we may be able to arrange a visit with a family-friendly guide. Please contact us.
We purchase skip-the-line tickets however everyone must go through the same security procedures. This can sometimes take longer than expected however having skip-the-line tickets can speed the process up.
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your guide will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.

Her main goal is always the same: to make her clients feel Milanese for a day.
