Duomo di Milano, Milan

4.7
#1 of 5,066 in Things to do in Lombardy
The fifth-largest cathedral in the world, Duomo di Milano is a marvel of Gothic architecture. Climb up to the roof and enjoy arguably the most spectacular views of the city, visible between the cathedral's Gothic spires. Constructed between 1386 and 1965, this massive church is known for its white marble, hundreds of spires, thousands of statues on its exterior, and a buttressed facade. You can take photos inside the cathedral if you buy a special wristband at the entrance. You can reach the roof, which is open during daylight hours, via elevator or 250 stairs. Make advance reservations if you'd like a guided sunset tour of the spires.

  • An icon of Catholicism, is a sin to not go to visit this place being in Milan, also if you want to make these purchases just in the right place to visit stores more famous, just to the rededor of the Duomo

  • Wonderful site worth visiting. The "but" comes from the Organization to the site: apart from the automatic landmarks (which deliver a ticket at reduced fare, or even children in free must have their ticket) must take a ticket with a number and wait d be called counter! 1 h tail to start at 9: 00 in the morning... If prepaid by internet: € 10 extra! For safety 2nd line at the entrance to the site (normal, bags etc). With BB 7 months in the stroller we came in 3 Minutes (a kind of Cup leader that it was more expected!) We took the option elevator for the terraces with the children (5 years and 7 months). Strollers are not prohibited if they are folded and the child is in the arms of the parent. Possibility of left her stroller folded up a little after the elevator next to a guard - cest + easy to visit the roofs. The view and the site are amazing and worth the visit (and tail)

  • Nice, for goodness sake! But I find it totally unjustified pay for having to enter the Cathedral of us in Milan. Space to pray, "free" is fenced and divides the paying customers by not paying. You don't see the altar from space reserved for prayer. You cannot even give limited explanations about the Church in space. Hallucinating.

  • Historical building with a lot of history behind it. Mesmerizing architecture outside and captivating artwork on the inside. Everything about it gives an impression of grandeur.... The paintings on window-glass illuminate with sunlight and adds an awe-inspiring touch to the beauty. Becomes quite beautiful at night with all the lighting!
  • Stunning architecture with amazing atmosphere. It is good to bring corn seeds to feed the birds as they are used to this. They will stand on your body to feed. The adjacent shopping experience is also very nice with many food options. Many street performers with excellent musicians. Generally the place is highly recommended .
  • Milan' s symbol of excellence, gorgeous outside and spectacular inside. The view from the top of the Duomo proposes an amazing skyline Loved the gothic architecture, you cannot miss the Duomo if you are visiting Milano. Only 3 euro to get into the cathedral. A must at the Duomo is a visit to the roof. If you are visiting the roof there are two options to get an elevator (extra cost) or a lot of stairs. The tickets of the terrace with elevator is 13 euro (7 euro steps on foot). When you arrive on the top, the view leaves you breathless; On a bright day sunset from the rooftop is fabulous. The overview is amazing not only over the city but also the Alps; The view at close hand the fabulous stone towers of which there are many. Everything then was done by hand, cutting the stone, raising the roof, installing the stained-glass windows, since 1386 Queue for tickets purchasing is long but worth it. Worth spending couple of hours to see this beautiful Duomo Keep at-least 2 hours to explore the roof of the cathedral, plus at least one hours inside If you are lucky enough to be in there during Mass you can hear that pipe organ. Next to the church is a large enclosed shopping mall and many retail streets and stores.
  • This beautiful Cathedral is located in the heart of Milan and is the symbol of Milan and all of Italy! This is a late-latent release, which contains many spiers and sculptures, marble pointed towers and columns, connected by a large number of supports. White marble is used! Inside is very beautiful! One of the largest in Europe. Here you must visit and see this beautiful structure!
  • On a beautiful day, simply breathtaking. Over the holidays, the stunning holiday tree accentuates the front of the Duomo and acts as the center of all of the secondary holiday decorations. Christmas Village (small holiday shops) surround the building and make it an even busier area for tourists and locals alike.
