    Wow! If you are in Milano and don't see the Duomo you are crazy ;) 2E and you can take photos inside for personal use. Wear suitable clothes. Chest must be covered and dresses over knee. No shorts

    The inside is nice but the real fun is going up top. Buy a stairs ticket beforehand, skip the line, and explore the roof. I pretended to be a gargoyle which amused / worried the other visitors.

    Absolutely stunning architecture. The immense amount of detail that went into this place is astounding. 2 euros for basic access and the price goes up for there. A must visit.

    The entrace to Duomo is free. For terrace visit you hace to pay 7€ on foot or 12€ on elevator. It worths the views. On a sunshine day seat and relax at the top of the cathedral while sunbathing.

    The Duomo of Milan is an amazing sight. It's the third largest church in Christendom. To appreciate this beautiful cathedral in all its glory, take the lift to the roof!View of the Alps on a clear day

    You can buy tickets online ( without having to specify a time/date. Go straight to the 'groups' window to pick them up. Great option if you want to be flexible with your visit.

    See the famous Duomo of Milan, a huge cathedral, a unique building, a fusion of different architectural styles of the old times as it was started in 1386 and finished in 1965. You won't stop staring!

    Incredible views from the terraces, both of the city and the building itself. Walking up is very easy, and it's a good idea to buy a ticket in advance if planning on going at the weekends!

    A gigantic work in late Gothic style, it spreads out over a surface of 11,700 m2. From its 108 m. post, the statue of the Madonnina stands out, along with the pinnacles.

    Look to La Madonnina (Virgin Mary's statue) atop Duomo. A smaller replica of the Madonnina was placed atop the Pirelli building - this Madonnina from the late 1950s remains the tallest point in Milan. Read more

    A Cathedral as enormous as Milan's is bound to have a few mysteries hidden away somewhere. One of them can be found in the left-hand transept: a giant candlestick, known as the Candelabro Trivulzio... Read more

    If you have to stay in a long queue for tickets on a hot day, choose the ticket office on the shady side of the Cathedral (left side if you are there before noon). You will save yourself some sweat.

    The most impressive cathedral in Italy! Seems like there's no end to those colomns inside and they just disappear in myst... As well as all the sounds. The whole atmosphere is really incredible!

    If you are in Milano you must go at least one time on the Duomo's Roof. In the noisy downtown, surrounded by a gothic atmosphere, you can feel an unbelievable and impressive calm, and silence too.

    Entrance fee is 2 € just for the cathedral. There are 5 ticket offices with long queues. It is really an enourmous structure with tons of detail.

    Grand architecture and fabulous facade. Most awesome part is to be able to reach the roof of the cathedral and enjoy the city views on a sunny day! Absolute must!

    Beautiful Cathedral Duomo. You can visit the roof and terrace of this cathedral with nice view of Milano. Use stairs or elevator.

    One of the most mesmerizing cathedrals in the world. Took over 500 years to complete with architectural influence from different eras, which can still be appreciated.

    With its spires, pinnacles, gables and countless statues, this cathedral is most breathtaking when the afternoon sun shines on its white stone. – Green Guide Editor

    There is a sign saying that you need to buy a bracelet to photograph inside but if the stand is unattended, you can ignore the restriction.

    The entire piazza is bustling with activity and many things to see and do. La Rhinescente mall is nearby as well as food places like McDonalds.

    Climb to the top (don't take the elevator) and take tons of pictures! Gorgeous gothic cathedral from the 1300s with statues and gothic architecture.

    The view is great, but to avoid the queue to buy your ticket, ask your hotel desk, maybe they have some to sell.

    There is a typical Lombard saying “a uf” which means “free of charge”. It refers to the fact that transporters of the marble blocks were exempt from payment of duties.

    Make sure you get in the right queue to go up the top - there are separate queues for buying tickets, going up by lift and going up by stairs

    Architecture is impressive. Inside the monument is less spectacular. It is worth to visit anyhow.

    The Duomo is the most beautiful monument of the city. You have to go on the roof top to see the city from the terraces.

    MARVELOUS! Book your tickets in advance and skip the line. Also don't bring large bags, since security is high.
