Visit the Duomo:

el Duomo, Milan

  • Brief description: the Duomo di Milano is one of the world's most beautiful cathedrals and the second biggest in size (after Seville Cathedral). Situated in the city's central square it has a height of 157 metres and capacity to hold 40,000 people. It is in the Gothic style, although Renaissance and neo-classical styles have been added. The best time to visit the Duomo is in summer, when the windows project a kaleidoscope of colours into the interior. Careful with what you wear (bare shoulders, short skirts and shorts are not allowed).
  • Opening hours: Monday to Sunday from 8.00h. to 19.00h. Last admission at 18.10h.
  • Cost: 3€
  • How to get there: take the metro and get off at the Duomo stop (yellow and red lines).
  • "Gastronomic" note: behind the Duomo, on the Via S. Radegonda 16, you will find the Luini bakery, which sells the most famous small patties in the whole of Milan: the Panzerotti. The classic panzerotti, filled with mozzarella and tomato, is the most popular but there are all sorts of varieties (ham, pesto and cherry tomatoes, cheese and spinach, aubergine...) 2.50€ each.
