The Duomo in Milan is undoubtedly the crown jewel of the city, with its intricate Gothic facade and impressive interiors. Jump ahead of the long lines with this skip-the-line admission ticket and tour the ancient structure that took over 600 years to complete. After your small-group guided tour, climb up the steps to the rooftop and enjoy stunning panoramic views of Milan’s skyline as you walk between the spires.

The Ambrosius basilica is supposedly the burial ground of the first christian bishop of Mediolanum in the Roman era. It was on the edge of the Roman city so it is likely to have been founded on Roman burial grounds. The church is a great example of early mediaval structures. With tombstone used as bricks for the wall and great mediaval art in site it is a beauty to visit

The Basilica is an interesting historical site, with features dating back to early centuries. It isn't closed as Tripadvisor claims, but back open again following covid restrictions being relaxed.

Great! Little of the early church remain mainly round the apse and Chapel of San Vittore. The interior has an altar with a wonderful mosaic If you are in Milan you must visit the Basilica.

If you have time you can take a look but don't expect too much, its an average place to see. I don't highly recommend.

I attended Catholic mass here twice during my visit to Milan in late December 2019 and early January 2020. The first time was on a Sunday. When I arrived here early in the morning it was still dark outside. I went in to the courtyard which was very interesting. The inside of the church is very rich. The altar has a fresco, there are statues, scenes of Jesus and the crucifixion and Mary with infant Jesus, religious paintings, etc. The second time I came here was on New Years Day. Again I got here early in the morning but they told me that the mass would not start until 10 am. Both masses were in Italian and very moving. There is a nice gift shop in the church. I definitely think that Basilica di Sant'Ambroglio is a "must-see" in Milan. And I think it is a more manageable church for attending catholic mass as opposed to the Duomo.
