The Cathedral is undoubtedly one of Milan’s most recognisable landmarks. The elaborate structure is dedicated to St. Mary of the Nativity and took almost six centuries to complete, resulting in a mixture of styles that make this duomo truly unique. Work began in 1386, coinciding with Gian Galeazzo Visconti’s rise to power, whose ambition to follow the latest trends in Europe saw a French chief engineer employed – giving the structure its Rayonnant Gothic style.

The majestic white marble building extends over 157 metres, making it the fifth-largest church in the world and the second-largest in Italy. Its expansive interior can comfortably fit 40,000 people, and thousands visit each year from all around the world. Those choosing to climb the stairs to the roof are rewarded with spectacular views over Milan and a closer look at the intricate spires and gargoyles that protect the duomo.

 

Price: €2 per adult to enter the cathedral. To go to the roof, it costs €10 per adult for the stairs or €12 for the lift (there will still be some stairs to climb after the lift).
