Milan Duomo Ticket Information
Why book your Milan Duomo ticket in advance?
The Duomo is the symbol of Milan and a must see for anyone visiting the city. Given its popularity, the line at the ticket office can be very long, especially on weekends and in high season. Therefore, buying your ticket online in advance is highly recommended as it will allow you to skip the long lines and save you precious time on your holiday.
Milan Duomo Ticket Options
There are a number of different ticket options available for visiting the Duomo. What ticket you will end up buying depends on what you want to see in the Duomo. The Milan Duomo is divided into different areas. For some of these areas you need to be in the possession of a ticket in order to gain access, while for other areas this is not the case. The 5 main areas of the Duomo which you can only visit with a ticket are the following:
- The Cathedral
- The Museum
- The Archaeological Area
- Church of St. Gottardo in Corte
- The Rooftop (aka terraces)
Below we list the different ticket options available, with a small description of each and how much the ticket costs:
Duomo Pass by Lift (aka Duomo Pass A) - this ticket gives you priority access to all areas of the Duomo (i.e. the Cathedral, the Rooftop, the Museum, the Archaeological Area and the Church of St. Gottardo in Corte). With this Duomo Pass you will access the rooftop by elevator instead of having to take the stairs. An optional audioguide, which is available in 9 languages, can be added for a small additional cost.
Duomo Pass by Stairs (aka Duomo Pass B) - this smartphone ticket is identical to the Duomo Pass A described above, with the only difference that instead of accessing the terraces by elevator you will climb up the stairs. Likewise, an optional audioguide is available for a small additional cost.
Ticket for the Duomo & the Museum (aka Culture Pass) - This skip the line ticket gives you access to all areas of the Duomo, except for the rooftop.
Milan Cathedral: Rooftop Terraces Ticket - this fast track mobile ticket only provides access to the rooftop from where you will enjoy stunning panoramic views of Milan. You can choose between accessing the rooftop by stairs or the elevator. The elevator option costs a little more but you will not have to climb up the 250 steps.

Best time to visit the Duomo
Go visit the Duomo as early in the morning as possible. This is the ideal time to visit, as you will be able to explore the Duomo in more solitude than at other times of day. It’s also a perfect time to take pictures as the sun rises behind the cathedral.
If you don't mind visiting the Duomo when it’s busier, consider going for sunset. The sunset from the rooftop is stunning. You will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over Milan against the backdrop of the alps.
