This is amazing place, full of history and nice to be visited. However, there are so many people, and you might not be able to make a nice picture of yourself and the Duomo.

The Duomo, in the heart of Milan, is impossible to miss. The architecture and history behind it is truly an awe inspiring experience.

Large plaza with SO much to see. Unfortunately, it was hot day we came so we couldn't explore the plaza without overheating. Overall, nice place to see.

Great for photos and being harassed by street vendors and pigeons. Still, it's exceedingly lovely at night.

One of the cool things to do while in Milan is to take a bike and cycle around . With plenty of bike shares dotting the city , it is quite a " moving " experience .

Visit Milan's main cathedral, which took 500 years to build! See the views from the very top!

The place to stand in Milan to get the best photos of the cathedral. Also handy for the shopping gallery.

The plaza in front of the Duomo is a nice square to sit and relax and enjoy the views.

It's break taking to emerge from the metro to see the Duomo for the first time. But the huge crowds in the piazza become overwhelming pretty quickly. It's great for people watching though.

The Duomo is what gives the plaza its character and charm but the masses of people inhabiting it provide its excitement.

Piazza del Duomo is the main piazza square of Milan. It is named after, and dominated by, the Milan Cathedral (the Duomo).

The Milan Cathedral is behind me here as I stand in the middle of the square. "The piazza marks the center of the city, both in a geographic sense and because of its importance from an artistic, cultural, and social point of view. With an overall area of 17,000 m2 (about 183,000 sq ft), the piazza includes some of the most important buildings of Milan (and Italy in general), as well some of the most prestigious commercial activities, and it is by far the foremost tourist attraction of the city." - wiki

Worth the wait on line. It is a magnificently stunning church. Women do not forget to cover your shoulders. Also explore the piazza and soak up the vibe and the culture.

Of all the places in Europe, I feel the most unsafe when I am here. A lot of people will approach you and it is a prime place to get mugged. However the duomo is impressive and is most beautiful at night.
