A few hours in Milan - Enough time to get from station to duomo and back?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be taking a train from Varenna to Milano-Centrale on Friday, July 27. The train is scheduled to arrive in Milan at 1:40pm. We are planning on taking a train from Milano Centrale to Firenze-S.M.N. that leaves at 4:20pm. During that time between trains we are hoping to take the metro to see the Duomo. I would also like to get tickets to go to the roof of the Duomo. In experienced traveler's opinions, will we have time to get to the Duomo and back for our next train in that 2 hour and 40 minute period? I feel pretty certain that we can at least go to the Duomo and look around and make it back, but what about going to the roof? Is there usually a long line for tickets and using the elevator or stairs? We will also have our bags with us. I know there is a baggage check at the train station. Is there a long line for that too? We are backing light - a backpack each. If there is not enough time for baggage check can we take our bags in the Duomo and on the roof or will they not let us do that? We can not leave any later than 4:20, because of the check in times at our B&B in Florence. I know the Milano Centrale train station is hectic, but I have been there before and am not worried about navigating the station.

Any details anyone has from experience would be great.

Grazie!
