El Duomo(in Milan) is one of the most spectacular sights in Europe and is the world’s third largest church. It is the centre piece of Milan and the piazza (square) in front only adds to the grandeur.
This huge cathedral is full of spires as if trying to puncture the sky, 135 of them to be exact! The 14th century cathedral took over 500years to complete. Brunelleschi's Dome was a masterpiece of construction and its interior is covered in frescoes. Visitors can climb to the top of the Dome for good views.
Travellers are advised to empty the pockets of metal objects and open the bags and not to bring big bags. It's forbidden that visitors enter the Cathedral with helmets, glass objects and luggage.
