Audio guide needs to be picked up in ticket office if you are going straight to terrace. We took the stairs and it was manageable to climb all the way up. Top of the duomo is very beautiful, must visit for everyone.

There was a celebration taking place at our pre-booked time so only we visited the rooftop, but returned a couple of days later to see inside and the experience was just as rewarding!

Well informed and thorough guide--We enjoyed this experience. The rooftop was amazing with fantastic views and art. Beautiful cathedral to see up close! Many steps to walk down!

What great sights. Amazing what makes a church when exploring from top to bottom. Would not suggest walking the steps to the top unless in fair shape health wise.

Guide was very informative and interesting for her group
