About
The centerpiece of Milan, the Duomo is one of Europe’s greatest architectural and cultural landmarks. As Italy’s largest church and one of the largest in the world, it took over 600 years to build. Today, the Duomo has a capacity of 40,000 people and is home to the world’s second-largest organ. Admire the wide selection of religious art on display inside, or marvel at the 3000 statues that line its Gothic exterior. Be sure to join one of the available Duomo tours, which include art tours and even rooftop tours, where you might be able to see as far as the Italian Alps. – Tripadvisor

Top ways to experience Duomo di Milano
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Beat the crowds - visit first thing in the morning
    Stunning cathedral, beautiful stained glass windows and free to enter. It’s obviously a must see when in Milan. The cathedral has a long history, so be sure to read up on it or hire a guide in order to get the most from your visit.

    Duomo di Milano one of a kind catherdal
    The Duomo of Milan tells a story of faith and art spanning over six centuries. Construction work on the Duomo of Milan began around 1386 and lasted just under 600 years until 1965. What else is there to say about this incredible cathedral that has not been said as of yet. Highly recommend to dedicate a full day to view both the outside and inside including the rooftop tour..

    Beautiful place
    I absolutely loved this building. As soon as i came out of the tube station, it's there. it's an incredible building. It is a busy area, though, so i would say not to take big bags. It's worth a visit though the inside is gorgeous surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants ❤️

    Mor stunning than ever
    Having visited Milan multiple times in the last twenty-odd years Isuspect I have never seen the Duomo with less scaffolding and I have to say the front facade in particular looks more stunning than ever. It used to be a particular joy to get out on the roof but every visit the queues seem to get longer and longer, so this time I didn't even bother trying. Ah, the joys of mass tourism. But if it's your fist visit once you have absorbed the stunning outside of the building then you should definitely gird our loins and join the queue both to see inside and to get on the roof. You won't regret it.

    Great view of the city
    I chose a very busy time to visit the Duomo (Christmas). I chose to take the lift to go to the roof but you can take the stairs as well. The view from the rooftop is just amazing. You can see most of the city from it. And the cathedral is beautiful with a lot of paintings inside. It is definitely a must visit in Milano.

    A true must see!
    This is definitely one of the top cathedrals to see in the world, in my opinion. It is a breath taking mix of art, craftsmanship, and history. Be sure to get tickets ahead of time and to get there early, as it is incredibly busy. Doing the terrace tour, by lift I recommend, is an absolute must as well. The views alone as well as being up close with the architecture is a once in a lifetime experience. There is still quite a bit of walking and climbing with the terrace lift ticket so just beware. And do try to make time to visit both the archeological site underneath the church as well as the museum next door, both fascinating. Note of caution: they do charge to use the toilets so consider going before arriving to avoid any lines or surprises.

    Mémorable expérience ; must do in Milan.
    A Must do in Milan. Very beautiful cathedral. Tickets are required to enter. It is quite easy to buy tickets, people understand English well. Make sure to arrive early if you don’t want to wait too long to buy tickets (we had quite a huge crowd around 11AM-3AM). Once you buy tickets you will not have to wait very long to access to the cathedral or the terrace. And don’t forget the dress code to enter the cathedral ! I also recommend to buy the ticket that open access to the roof of the cathedral, as it is not much expensive and the view is memorable. We went up by stairs ; it does not require a lot of physical effort if you are worried about taking the stairs, it is very accessible by stairs even if you are not a good at sports.

    A sight to behold
    Surprisingly not a UNESCO world heritage site yet. Largest church in Italy and 3rd largest in Europe. Started construction in 1386 and completed 1965. Beautiful exterior and interior. Certainly a to do item in Milan

    Awesome Experience
    Our group got a great tour of the Duomo both on the inside and on the rooftop terraces from our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Duomo and it showed throughout our tour. Our group was very happy with the experience and I would highly recommend this tour to others hoping to see this beautiful and historic structure for the first time!

The Milan Duomo (Duomo di Milano) is an absolute must-see for anyone visiting Milan. It's a architectural masterpiece, both inside and out. Be amazed by the intricate details, stunning stained glass windows, and sheer scale of this magnificent cathedral.

Here are my highlights from my visit:

The Exterior: The intricate facade adorned with countless statues is simply breathtaking. Take your time to walk around the entire building and appreciate all the details.
The Interior: Stepping inside is like entering another world. The soaring stained glass windows cast beautiful light throughout the space, creating an awe-inspiring atmosphere. Don't miss the opulent main altar and the impressive sarcophagi.
The Views (Worth the Climb!): Climbing to the rooftop offers panoramic views of Milan. It's a bit of a hike, but the reward is truly worth it. You can see for miles across the city, taking in all the iconic landmarks.
Tips for Fellow Travellers:

Buy Tickets in Advance: Lines can get quite long, especially during peak season. I recommend purchasing your tickets online or at the official ticket office located near the Duomo.
Beware of "Skip the Line" Offers: While tempting, resist the pressure from people offering tours with "quick entrance." These are often overpriced and unnecessary. You can usually buy tickets and enter the line on your own quite efficiently.
Dress Modestly: This is a place of worship, so it's important to dress respectfully. For women, shoulders and knees should be covered.
Overall, visiting the Duomo di Milano was a truly amazing experience. It's a place that will stay with you long after you leave. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Milan!

very very beautiful, imposing structure, located in a huge square. It makes a good impression, as well as being one of the most important monuments of the city. Italy has a lot of potential.

I had read reviews that the inside isn’t actually that nice, but to be honest it really was! Immaculate architecture and interior art. I would just recommend booking the tickets online (there was a QR code stand by the entrance) rather than walking down the street to the actual ticket box office on the left, because it took an extremely long time for to get our turn and to get the tickets. Would recommend going inside though!

Visited the cathedral which is absolutely stunning. It’s made from marble and the sheer scale is incredible. There are lovely stained glass windows, the organ is large, the carving breathtaking. Didn’t go to the crypt. The tickets I bought took us from the roof into the cathedral. The views from the roof are amazing. Took so many photos. Highly recommended but book before you go.

Me and my Fiance went up the Duomo terrace using the stairs which sounds worse than it is, we are both mid 20's and physically able and found it really easy to get up to the terrace to the point we were surprised when we reached the top. There are some more stairs on the roof itself but nothing too taxing.

There were a lot of works ongoing on the building during our visit but there was still an incredible view and definitely worth doing. You can see from the Square all the way to the San Siro stadium including the mountains surrounding the Lakes to the north.

I can only compare this site with Vatican. It has got to be one of the best in the world.
The roof is also a must-see spot. You can observe Milan City very clearly.
There is plenty of photo opportunity.
The waiting was only 5 minutes to get in with the pre-paid tickets.
Don't miss it!

I was really excited to visit as love a good church. Have to say the scale of the place is incredible. No wonder it took so long to build. It is VERY touristy. Long queues. Lots of people. The amount of money they are obviously generating you’d think they would fix some of the issues. Anyway, it was OK.
