An exclusive visit above the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, a drink at a rooftop bar or a glass of champagne overlooking the Duomo.
For centuries, the tallest building in Milan was the Duomo with its golden Madonnina, towering at the height of 110 metres in the heart of the city. An iconic symbol, it has been watching over its inhabitants since 1774. In 1954, with a full rebirth after World War II bombings, other erections conquered the tallest building primacy – but nothing has overcome the love of the locals for their Madunina.
The Velasca Tower was built in1958, a skyscraper that soon became the symbol of Milan skyline, then in 1960, the Pirelli Tower, known as the “Pirellone”, was designed by architect Giovanni Ponti and remained for over 50 years as the highest building in the city, standing 127 metres high. It’s still one of the highest reinforced concrete structures in the world, but today the Unicredit Tower, the tallest building in Italy, is dominating Milan skyline. With its 31 floors and single spire, it stands 231meters high. See it from its base in Piazza Gae Aulenti – the new, busy centre of the Porta Nuova district.
Pools and restaurant on top of the historic Enel building (Italy’s largest electricity company), Dsquared2 group headquarters. Ceresio 7 is a 24-hour place: in the morning, with pools and rooftop lunch and in the early evening, with the aperitif and after dinner at the American Bar. Chef Elio Salah, with his contemporary Mediterranean cuisine, oversees the kitchen, while the bar features the best bartenders in the city.
Would you like to get to the top of the Duomo and admire its 135 spires and the Madonnina up close? You can, either on foot or by lift. From morning to night, the view to the square packed with people and everything around it is spectacular. But being face to face with some of the 1800 statues that live up there and observing the marble decorations and details up close is even more exciting.

With a view over the Duomo’s spires, on la Rinascente’s top floor and nestled in the most suggestive spot in Milan, the first Moët & Chandon Champagne Bar is here. Enjoy a glass of the best vintages and oysters.
Built during the post-war period, it is an example of Rationalism, a modern rendering of the Torre del Filarete at Castello Sforzesco. The first eighteen floors are occupied by shops and offices, while the subsequent ones, up to the 26th are private apartments. It cannot be visited, unless for a café at the bottom, but you can see it from everywhere in Milan.
Designed by Gio Ponti in the thirties, the tower, located in the middle of Parco Sempione is a steel work of art. It is 108.60 metres high and nowadays a modern elevator allows five people at a time to reach the belvedere indoor cabin in just under one minute.
