Owner description: 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.

I exited the Duomo train station and was welcomed by the magnificent sight of the cathedral. I couldn't stop saying, "Wow, wow...it's just awesome!" Please be dressed decently. No shorts or sleeveless blouses for women. Bring a scarf if you still intend to wear sleeveless blouses. For men, no shorts please. I guess visitors need to honor the place of worship.

Incredible! Breathtaking.. On the inside the cathedral has a medieval atmosphere, due to its gothic style. Our guide even pointed out impressive details in the architecture, and It's definitely a great place to start and explore Milan!

This iconic cathedral is a must see in Milan. The exterior is over-the-top Gothic and takes a long time to really appreciate. Pay a little to make the climb to the rooftop, it is quite a spectacular vantage point. You can see the sculptures and gargoyles up close, and get a good look across the city. I also recommend a visit to the Treasures of the Duomo which is in a separate building to the right of the cathedral (when you're facing it). Definitely a worthwhile stop on any Milan tour.

Cathedral is properly impressive when you walk into the Piazza del Duomo. Walking around the interior is very interesting. It's absolutely worth paying to walk or take the lift up to the roof - amazing views, and also a fabulous to get up close with the architecture and flying buttresses of the cathedral.
