Duomo di Milano, Milan

4.8
#1 of 5,909 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. Put Duomo di Milano and other Milan attractions into our Milan online trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Amazing architecture! Would have loved to see the interior as well. Unfortunately big queues put us off. We don't like crowded spaces especially with young children. We did walk around it and it was quite spectacular. By all means if you have time and patience go for it!
  • A truly amazing monument that is worth admiring for the magnificent artwork and sculptures. An absolute delight watching this beautiful building at all times. There are plenty of musical and other events always there including the promotional ones. It is very easy to reach by metro as there is a metro station just at Duomo. There are many reputed restaurants around that offer authentic Italian cuisine, wine and desserts. There are plenty of shops for branded Italian clothes, jewellery and other items. The artwork is simply amazing everywhere along this place.
  • Absolutely a MUST VISIT! Only 3€ to go inside. The size of this cathedral is awe inspiring. From the outside it’s incredible but the inside is simply breathtaking. Also if you are of faith and wish to go inside to pray etc there is a section at the front left where if you tell them you wish to go inside to pray they will let you in for free. Please don’t abuse this though. If caught taking photos etc from this area you will be asked to leave.
  • The main landmark of Milan. Truly beautiful and breathtaking. There are always a lot of tourists. However, there are also a lot of people who are looking for easy money. So, be careful with your stuff, take an eye on your bags all the time. Do not take anything from people on the square (they can give you grains for a cool photo with pigeons, and ask fit money later). For those, who did not know, you can go on the roof of the Cathedral, and it’s really beautiful there. The cost of ticket is 10 Euros and there are time periods for entry so better check them in advance.
  • Majestic and Magnificent. The architecture is impressive and stellar. Not much to see in the crypt but the effigies are of high quality and detailed. 3D sculptures rendering from that time. Enjoyed the visit and time your visit towards sunset. The views from the top at this time are simply amazing.
