A top visited city in Europe, Milan draws big crowds to the Duomo, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper,” and other attractions. A skip-the-line tour in Milan lets you bypass long lines at these top sights—here are a few time-saving ways to explore this city.
Milan’s most recognizable landmark is its cathedral, the multi-spired Duomo. Once free to enter, the cathedral now comes with an admission fee—which can mean long lines, especially for the elevator up to the roof, where travelers from around the world go to walk among the spires. Skip-the-line tours of the Duomo get you past the entrance lines, and some also allow you to avoid the lines to the rooftop elevator.
Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”
Perhaps the best-known piece of artwork in Milan, this fragile fresco is monitored closely, and the number of people that can view it at any one time is limited. With this, tickets for “The Last Supper” sell out sometimes months in advance. Plan ahead and get your ticket to see da Vinci’s handiwork on a self-guided visit, or book a tour that includes skip-the-line tickets to “The Last Supper” for fast-track entry.
In addition to individual skip-the-line tours to the Duomo and “The Last Supper,” travelers can also book combo tours that cover multiple attractions with skip-the-line access. These can be especially helpful if your time in Milan is limited. Combine a city walking tour or a stop at an art-filled church with a visit to “The Last Supper,” or see more of the Duomo with a tour that combines a visit to the cathedral with stops at its underground excavations and rooftop terraces.
