The ascent to the panoramic Torre Branca is a unique experience that offers a spectacular view over the city of Milan. This tower is a very light steel construction that was built in 1933, designed by the Italian architect Gio Ponti, inside the Parco Sempione. A few steps away is the Triennale Milano, a design, art and architecture hub that hosts numerous exhibitions throughout the year, and right next door is the Just Cavalli Milano Restaurant & Club, one of the city’s most famous landmarks for elite events.
Built entirely of steel tubes, the Torre Branca has a hexagonal shape with a slight tapering towards the top. 108,60 metres high, it is equipped with a panoramic lift in the centre that almost every day of the year, except in bad weather, provides a 360 degree view of Milan. This tower is the tenth highest accessible structure in the city after the Unicredit Tower (231 m), the Isozaki Tower (207 m), the Palazzo Lombardia (161 m), the Solaria Tower (143 m), the Diamante Tower (140 m), the Pirelli Skyscraper (127 m), the Breda Tower (117 m), the Bosco Verticale (111 m) and the Galfa Tower (109 m). The Madonnina on the main spire of the Duomo di Milano, on the other hand, stands at a height of 108,50 metres.
The panoramic lift takes you to the enclosed viewing terrace, ascending every 10 minutes for 5 people at a time. To obtain an entrance ticket, you can go directly to the counter located in a quiet area at the base of the tower. It is possible to book online, but admissions will still be regulated at the entrance based on availability.
