About
The Duomo, symbol of Milan in the world, is one of the largest cathedrals in Italy and Europe. Patrimony of Milanese people and humanity, over the centuries it has been expressing, with its magnificence, the devotion of humanity toward the Divine, involving future generations in an endless commitment. The Milan Cathedral, besides being an artistic monument, is a privileged place of prayer, deeply linked to the memory and teachings of the Bishops who succeeded on St. Ambrose's chair, and to the history of the millions of worshippers who, every year, gather in this place to celebrate the Sacred Mysteries. The Cathedral is the mother Church of the Diocese, having a symbolic role of exemplarity both in the life of the city worship, and in relation with the Diocese activity.

Top ways to experience Duomo di Milano
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

One of the most beautiful duomos I have visited in Italy
Oct 2021
This is a magnificent duomo! The huge columns are topped by very ornate capitals of which no two are alike! This was our 2nd visit and restoration is still ongoing and probably will be for a decade more. This trip we went to the roof which would have had a great view, but it was raining so the view was limited. I would not recommend going to the roof in the rain; it is all marble and much of the roof is slanted so it can be slippery and many of the steps are outside so one has to really watch one's step! But we will definitely go back again to see the roof and view in good weather.

The most famous monument in Milan and rightly so!

The most famous monument in Milan and rightly so because it's beautiful. Gets very crowded during the day, better to go early in the morning to avoid the crowd.

Beautiful.

Took the lift up to the roof as my husband had a damaged knee. Views were beautful. You really get to appreciate the whole scale of the amount of genius that was needed to construct such an amazing building.

Be aware that although you take the lift up you have to walk the steps down. It was manageable for my husband, but had it been high season with large amounts of people it would have been harder. We didn't buy tickets for inside but you exit through the inside. You get to see the Duomo from the side but not the alter. Still worth the visit and would highly recommend.

Wow factor cathedral
Oct 2021
Amazing. Been all over the world and have seen quite a few cathedrals in my life time and thought nothing rivals France…. Wow, a must see! It was raining hard and it was late in the day, got in right away, probably due to Covid keeping the bus loads away!
Gorgeous outside and inside!

Great view from the roof

I don’t like heights and wasn’t sure about doing this, but am glad I did! Spectacular views of the stonework and buttresses. Well worth the price of the ticket!

I recommend buying ticket online. Its really worth going on the roofs. They are exceptional though there was some reconstruction in process.

It’s all yours at early morning
Sep 2021 • Friends
If you want to appreciate the cathedral without the crowd, set your alarm clock early morning. We went there around 7 am and only few people are there.

If you plan to enter the cathedral, make sure that you have a green pass or a valid rapid test as security is very strict. You can get the ticket only or join a tour. We did the latter.

Rooftop visit is a must, as well as going inside of the cathedral.
