No trip to Como should be without a visit to this great cathedral. Stunningly impressive, it is refreshingly down to earth a reflective of a house of God rather than a tourist attraction. The stained glass windows are amazing as are the ornate ceilings. Be advised, Sunday's are reserved for worship and tourists are requested to defer there visit to... More

Nice to walk around, take some pictures! There are some stairs going up, and you could say how cathedral makes the view of city more beautiful.

Dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, it has a prominent profile that you can catch from the lake, the surrounding hills, and just passing by train, an affirmation of its importance expressed by a diocese wanted to differentiate themselves from Milan. The original Romanesque building of the old Santa Maria Maggiore was extended to create the vast... More

Unlike the Duomo in Milan, this. Is smaller and less grand but still beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. There are no crowds to wrestle to get in or when exploring the inside of the cathedral. The courtyards are pretty too, not littered by markets and stores. Plus Como is a nice place to visit away from... More

Sitting beside the Duoma Como is a lovely courtyard and we enjoyed a harpist playing superbly - in fact we bought his CD and gave him 20E despite him only asking for 10E

Como is a beautiful place though in mid-July it's hot and filled with tourists! The Cathedral was welcome respite from both crowds and sun, and is magnificent. Not to be missed.

The Duomo was impressive and a must see for those visiting Como. The works of art and the architecture is also worthwhile to see. It is easily accessible in the centre of Como overlooking the piazza.
