Milan is a city that offers infinite architectural and landscape perspectives: from the high skyscrapers of the new districts to the charm of the Liberty buildings, from the banister palaces in the Navigli area to the rationalist buildings. Walking and getting lost in the streets of Milan’s neighborhoods always leads to new discoveries, new corners and unexpected views that we had never noticed.
An alternative way to admire the mix of styles and landscapes that Milan can offer, is to take on a different point of view, an unusual view from the everyday one. Why not change your perspective and enjoy Milan from above? There is nothing better than a panorama on the most beautiful Milanese places while sipping a good aperitivo. Here are 5 rooftops with a wonderful view of Milan.

DUOMO 21 | Centro Storico
Via Silvio Pellico, 2
The Duomo is, par excellence, the symbol of Milan. Why admire it only when we walk through the historic center?
