There is a lift to go up the Cupola, but it takes you up to some level only. What is worth the effort is to go further upstairs. At some point you will see that the corridors are becoming more and more narrow, just for...More
The only views in the world you can compare it with is the top of Eiffel. It is symmetrical and thus spectacular.
