Very exciting cathedral with lots of different chapels and crannies to go at. Lovely staff and decent leaflets in lots of different languages. Incredible coloured stained glass in the winter sun. Lovely domed cathedral in a lovely setting.

This is a beautiful old church and worth wandering around whilst in Como. Look for the two church organs.

Don't miss this for the bars and the shops. It's full of history and atmosphere and an age of old glass and wood that could tell many a story. You will find your special place here.

The tourist entrance is used when the Duomo is in Service so non-participating guests will not interrupt the religious program.
