You pay 3€ to take a lift up to enjoy the windy but amazing view of the cathedral and the city. You can also go up another set of stairs to see even further. Unfortunately there is glass infront of the view but it's still...More

The lift trip is great. Great views across the city. But if you don't climb stairs you won't get right to the top. Lots of stairs including, at the end, a spiral staircase. If you're up for a climb though, the views are worth

We looked around the Basilica (impressive, but not really my kind of thing) and then went up the tower. It gives you a spectacular view of the city and the Basilica itself and provides a great perspective. Not sure about the glass floor half way...More
