Awesome cathedral. Be sure to buy your ticket early, online is the easiest way. Make sure to prepare for waiting in a line to get inside. Definitely lots to explore here and paying extra for a tour of the rooftop is spectacular! Very interesting tidbits, and great views!

Peaceful spot in lovely Como. The building is constructed of a lovely stone and is situated in a lovely peaceful piazza. Free to enter and a great spot to get some shade during the summer months!

Stunning church in Como, the size will amaze you. Very worthwhile visit. Beautiful surrounds. Incredible to think that this church was built to these proportions for the size of the community

Although much smaller than Milan's Duomo, this one is equally as beautiful (and free to enter). Went there in mid January while a layer of snow was everywhere. Really a memorable sight and the place to see when in Como.

We went there when the Christmas lights illuminated the Cathedral and the buildings around were lighted by lazar images...it was amazing......Christmas trees with snow drifting down the facade...a feeling that cannot be described!

It was amazing with all the lights show on the church and other buildings around. Even it was no snow but we could get the feeling as it was very cold. We went there before Christmas and all the decoration was very beautiful.
