The Duomo, symbol of Milan in the world, is one of the largest cathedrals...

The Duomo, symbol of Milan in the world, is one of the largest cathedrals in Italy and Europe. Patrimony of Milanese people and humanity, over the centuries it has been expressing, with its magnificence, the devotion of humanity toward the Divine, involving future generations in an endless commitment. The Milan Cathedral, besides being an artistic monument, is a privileged place of prayer, deeply linked to the memory and teachings of the Bishops who succeeded on St. Ambrose's chair, and to the history of the millions of worshippers who, every year, gather in this place to celebrate the Sacred Mysteries. The Cathedral is the mother Church of the Diocese, having a symbolic role of exemplarity both in the life of the city worship, and in relation with the Diocese activity.

Great place, you must see it! Buy a ticket in advance, when there ar e not to many people at the ticketshop. Stairs to the rooftop are alright (even with a little hip problems!) Rooftop is a must see!

Wow. Just wow. What a place. Straight out of the subway to be greeted by this amazing structure. Its grand it's magnificent and the detail is unreal. The only bad thing is that you constantly have people trying to sell you things.

Dont pay for a cab as the subway trains bring you right in front of the church and its very cheap. We didnt climb the roof... More

We were really excited to see the Duomo and we weren't disappointed. The place wasn't too crowded on a Saturday morning and the view is absolutely stunning - it is truly a work of art that is worth seeing in real life. A must-see for anyone who's visiting Milan!

I wish I had bought the tickets in advance online. The waiting line for the ticket took us 30 minutes, because we're on a tight schedule we choose for the €2,- option. With that ticket we could visit the cathedral and the museum. Totally worth the 30 minutes waiting line but make sure if you're preparing to visit, buy the... More

Amazing view from the top. Sadly one side was under construction so we didn't have full view of the upstairs. Amazing architecture from the inside and out. Highlight of Milan.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
