Don't miss this for the bars and the shops. It's full of history and atmosphere and an age of old glass and wood that could tell many a story. You will find your special place here.

Beautiful Cathedral. You must visit inside for beautiful stained glass and painted domes!! Surrounding Christmas market was also very nice.

This landmark cathedral is within a short walk from the Como Lago train station. We toured it on our way to catch the ferry to Bellagio near Piazza Cavour. It’s cavernous and somewhat ornate inside but certainly not as glamorous as the one in Milan....More

The tourist entrance is used when the Duomo is in Service so non-participating guests will not interrupt the religious program.
