The first place to visit in Como is Duomo. It is a wonderful place who proves again the Italian talent to build amazing cathedrals. Anybody is welcome for free, even helping the woman with a shawl to preserve an devout aspect. Every piece of the building is meticulously designed and accomplished and everything is very well preserved.It is a real... More

Situated in the Piazza Duomo, Como Cathedral is a pale, stone building that seems too large for the narrow streets that surround it. It towers above the nearby buildings, and dominates the square. The front of the building is gothic in style, and decorated with arches and arched windows. A central 'rose' window is above the main entrance, but it's... More

Free entrance. Very nice roof paintings, amazing how they could reach and paint with such perfection. Go in if you are walking by, nothing worth a trip.

In the center of town, you'll find the Cathedral of Como. There are frequent religious events/activities. I love visiting these churches and admire the architecture. It is just down the street from shops and restaurants.

For many, all the major cathedrals in Italy are almost the same, they are equally magnificent. What is so special here is the black & white football designed floor tiles. It is no wonder why Italy is so good at football. Calcio has been in the blood since the old days. : )

The Como Duomo is really beautiful, in the centre of the historic part. It is situated in a small square full of restaurants. The inside is quite dark though, with little artistic interest.

It seems the travel books neglect this duomo preferring ones in the south. Don't miss this one! Fantastic

Beautiful architecture. I loved the colours of the stonework. Entry was free and definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. I wouldn't specially drive to go see it but the piazza outside with all the restaurants and the musician was a beautiful experience. There wasn't much else to see in Como. The mid-lake is definitely the place to... More
