    Top architecture.Tip to avoid waiting: take ticket (pass a) from shop at the back of cathedral ,check the rooftop and come back again at 19:30(half an hour its enough to discover the inside).😉🇬🇷

    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.

    Flamboyant gothic is marvelous. Climbing to the roof terrace is probably the best way to spend €7 in the whole city.

    Amazing place. Huge scale. Take advantage of the all in one ticket and visit the archeology (near the door) and roof (outside on the right hand side). All are great.

    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.

    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

    Its mentioned everywhere (on ticket and in guidebooks) that you cannot wear shorts but we saw a lot of men wearing shorts with their knees visible. On a hot day we came fully dressed. Not necessary!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    The church was built to hold 40,000 worshippers—the entire population of Milan when construction began and is the third-largest church in Europe (after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and Sevilla).

    A must! Visit the rooftop and touch the beauty of its architectural details up close! Get your tickets online before you go. That way, you will not have to wait in line to enter.

    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

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

    Cathedral is beautiful but on the square is so many homeless and people how are annoing with selling you every thing (food for pidgeons, selfiesticks, photos). You cant enjoy this place😔

    A true artwork built within six centuries with over three thousand statues placed on it and numerous tourists visiting it every day. Quite noisy and touristy.

    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.

    a favorite. mark twain puts it better than i can: " delicate, so airy, so graceful! a very world of solid weight, and yet it seems...a delusion of frostwork that might vanish with a breath."

    The view from the top is totally worth it, as long as you're okay with claustrophobic jostling along tight spiral staircases and catwalks to get there. Viva la Madonnina!
  • ✨#IamRomdelacrème✨
    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    A magnificent cathedral and if you have time climb up to the roof and you can take a close look and feel of all the spires.

    Amazing architecture. Gothic and takes you back to medieval times. Intricate and spellbinding statues and sculptures

    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

    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.
