About the Duomo of Milan

Iconic, majestic and monumental, Milan’s Duomo radiates its aura over the city centre. Nestled in the heart of the city, the Duomo, officially known as the Cathedral of Santa Maria Nascente, is a giant stone forest. Its towering spires and delicate lacework of marble form a symphony of shapes and textures, a living testament to the ingenuity and artistry of the Italian Renaissance. 

You’ll be immediately awestruck by its sheer size. Its marble façade depicts religious scenes, while statues of saints and angels seem to bridge the heavens. As you pass through its ade-green doors you'll be welcomed by vast candle-lit halls and thick incense-scented air, making this place of worship truly holy.  

Due to a lack of funding and political instability, the cathedral took more than500 years to complete with construction beginning in 1386 and finishing only in 1965. Entrusted to a committee of architects, including the renowned Francesco Talenti, Nicolas de Bonaventure and Giovanni di Balduccio, the cathedral was begun in the Gothic style. In 1805, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned King of Italy in the Duomo, which he ordered to be restored and completed. The final expansion phase took place in the 20th century.

How much time do I need for visiting the Duomo of Milan?

Most visitors spend around 2-3 hours at the Duomo, to see the highlights and climb up the rooftop and get eye-catching views of the city. 

It’s also important to consider the lines and crowds at the Duomo, especially during peak season. To avoid waiting in long queues, we recommend booking your tickets in advance and arriving early in the morning or late in the afternoon. 

What is the best time to visit Milan’s Duomo?

Milan is busy with visitors all year round. However, the quieter months are early February, March September and October as Milan rarely hosts international events. Visiting the Duomo early in the morning on a weekday and purchasing tickets in advance will ensure you the best possible experience. Skip-the-line tickets are available for pre-booking for entry – from March to October, with exception of the ‘Milan Fashion Week’ and ‘Salone del Mobile’. Generally, the quieter times are early and late in the day.
