Great panoramic view of Milan

Worth going all the way to the top. It was 5 Euros per person and you go up 103 meters and get 6 minutes to enjoy the panoramic view of the city.

The tower offers amazing views for miles and miles over Milan. They let people up in small groups and you are always accompanied by a member of staff. The maximum group size is 6 plus the member of staff. As the group sizes as small you always have plenty of room at the top to move about and never feel... More

The Torre Branca is a place to go if you want to get a view of Milan from above. It's 5€ per person and a small number of people are escorted up to the top of the tower at one time. At the top, you can see the many different old and new buildings in Milan as well as the... More

If you are left with little money and want to see the best of Milan I would recommend making a journey to the Torre Branca. When you reach the base of the structure, you will be taken to the top by the help of a glass elevator. When you reach the top, you will awestruck with the view right in... More

If you want to get above Milan then Duomo terrace is good, but at 180 metres high this is a must. Twenty minute wait and just five euros, its one of those must visits

Having just paid 28Euros to go up the Duomo with the family and been somewhat disappointed with the views, this was a spectacular trip. 4Eur a pop to take the glass elevator up to the viewing platform 109m above Milan. This provides a wonderful 360 degree panorama of Milan and the Alps beyond. Trip last a little over 10 minutes,... More

Milan does not have a spectacular view at night. In addition the tower doesn't have any extra facilities. Just 5 minutes there and coming back!

Its an excellent place, maybe the only one in milan, where you can have an entire view of the city from the above. You should go when the weather is nice.
