Know Before You Go
Timings and Availability
This tour is available daily at 10:30 AM and 3:30 PM. The guided tour lasts 1 hour, but customers can stay on the rooftops as long as they wish, until the closing time.
The rooftops are not accessible to people with disabilities. Prams & strollers are also not allowed on the rooftops.
We would highly recommend wearing comfortable footwear with rubber soles since the staircase to reach the highest terrace is particularly narrow and with smooth marble.
On the terraces, there are neither toilet facilities, nor coffee bars. We highly recommend bringing water with you.
Strict Cancellation Policy
This experience cannot be cancelled, amended or rescheduled.
They say that this is a skip the line ticket, yet somehow we ended up waiting for our group mates anyway- still good
I didn't think how intimate of an experience the "rooftop" alone would be, but it's something else. Not only the view, but the architecture
This architectural legacy didn't do justice to me, only because of how much I'd built it up in my head.
