The beautiful Duomo is a must-do in Milan. Entrance is free and though there would be hundreds of tourists, the square in front of the Duomo is huge so you will not feel congested. If you have time in Milan, i suggest to visit the Duomo in the day and night as it brings different flavors. In the day, the... More

I am not a religious person however whilst in the centre of Milan my very much Catholic partner felt compelled to go inside. I am glad she did really because it is equally impressive inside as it is on the out. My partner did have abit of cleavage on show and was rather embarassed when she was initially denied for... More

Be sure to go inside but also go up on the roof. The view is amazing. Take the elevator if you do not want to climb the stairs.

A breathtaking cathedral in Duomo, well worth a visit in the morning. The piazza is gorgeous, avoid the cafés and eateries nearby as they are very expensive indeed.

The interior and exterior architecture make the Duomo one of those sites that can't possibly be missed by anyone. Truly amazing.

The Duomo is a fantastic structure. When we came out of the metro in the late afternoon and the sun was shining on the front of the Cathedral, my breath was taken away. A visit inside was more than I could believe. I didn't do the pay for the audio tour. The detail in the statues are beyond belief. This... More

Amazing both outside and inside, worth to go upstairs (ticket 7 euro by steps, 14 by elevator), not so difficult to go by steps, young staff will try Your pulse afterwards if You want;) Daytime usually crowded everywhere inside and in front, but You'll want be back for sure.

I recently returned from a trip to Morthern Italy. I hired Autonleggio Mellzani Limousine Service. It was fabulous! The owner, Cristian Melzani was excellent to deal with. He and his drivers were always punctual, polite, and helpful. We used for train and airport transport. Hotel transport and one from Milan to Bellagio and back. I would definitely use his service...

No queues and we went twice during our long weekend - its a beautiful piece of creative work - the piazza outside is bustling with people and very (too) friendly pidgeons - for 12 euros you can take a lift to the rafters and view Milan - or for 7 euros you can take the stairs - but for Milan...

Out of all the "Duomo's" we visited in Italy this one had the best exterior. The interior is kinda cool and since they don't charge admission make sure you check it out.
