Duomo di Milano, Milan

4.7
#1 of 5,611 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.

  • Outside of the 'duomo' is worth a visit, the outside is beautiful, however the Interior is a bit disappointing. The stained glass windows are beautiful, a decrypt carefully

  • Magnificent place. Definitely worth a visit. Would recommend going in the early morning before 8am as the outside area is empty and you can really get good photos. Plenty of shopping and eateries around. Be careful of pick pockets in other times of the day as it's packed.
  • Absolutely the highlight of our trip to Milan! Here’s some helpful advice, head over to the fast track line and buy yourself access up to the roof. It’s worth every penny! At the end of your experience on the top, you still get to enter and walk around the cathedral. You also have the option (if you purchase it) to go down into the archeological areas and enter the museum next door. Please, do yourself a favor and go up to the roof!
  • Breathtaking experience to see a very detailed ornaments of the cathedral architecture. One experience you should not miss. The stairs to go to the rooftop area was quiet small and jammed, I'm not sure if it was the only access, but not really convenient for a lot of tourists who want to go up. But a rooftop area is a must to visit, the view of the city from top is amazing. And the closer look of the roof details won't disappoint you.
  • You can never get enough of the Duomo... it's an amazing site as you come off the metro...a marvel of architecture.... breathtaking and beautiful. The way the light hits it at different times of the day is just awesome. Climbing to the top is a must if you are physically able and not too scared of heights.
  • Beautiful.. this square is magnificent. A must come and visit not just in the morning but also at night. Wonderful and surrounded by lovely restaurants and nice expensive shops. Multicultural activities and a majestic church give this square a 100% Italian signature. Come and see for yourself.
