Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) is Milan's most famous monument and the third-largest Catholic church in the world. It is located in the heart of the old town, on the Piazza del Duomo. If you plan to visit this beautiful historic city in the near future, then a visit to the cathedral should be at the top of your to-do list!
The Duomo di Milano was built in 1386, with a mixture of Gothic and neoclassical styles. The main features of the cathedral are its famous towers as well as the beautiful exterior façade, which is richly decorated with statues and carvings that have been created over the centuries by the best artists of the time. At the highest point of the cathedral (108.5 m) is the golden Madonna or the Madonnina, as the Milanese would call it!
Would you like to admire Milan from above? When you visit the cathedral, do not miss the breathtaking view from the roof terrace. In good weather, one has a beautiful view of the entire city, as well as across to the Alps. It truly is a spectacular view, especially when the sun is setting, as the rich orange glow illuminates the city and creates a striking contrast with the carved statues and gargoyles on the Duomo’s roof. It's not to be missed!
Around the Cathedral Square there are many other attractions such as the Palazzo Reale, the Museo del Novecento, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the famous Teatro alla Scala. But Milan is not without reason to be the world’s fashion centre! Very close to the cathedral, numerous shops of the best-known fashion brands invite to an extensive shopping trip, for example, in the nearby Via Torino or Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.
We have a good and bad news for you. The bad is that it is generally quite difficult to find somewhere to park in the centre of Milan. The few parking spaces (marked in yellow) are usually reserved and the car parks are overfilled. It is also good to know that there is a limited traffic zone, the ZTL, in the city centre. If you want to drive to the city centre by car, you pay a fee of €5. And of course parking is not included in this fee. In addition, there are numerous roads that are not allowed for public road traffic. When driving through these zones, it’s just too easy to get fined.
