  • The Duomo is the biggest church of Como. It is an impressive building. For every Como visitor, a must see. It is necessary to go inside. The interior is beautiful.

  • Beautiful Catholic church with great interiors. The place had both gothic and renaissance interiors and there’s a story behind this. Go in and read about the architecture of the place and find out more about this piece of work that took hundreds of years to complete. This is free entry as well but they do ask for donations if you wish to support the church.
  • Beautiful Cathedral in the center of Como just next to the place. Within the Cathedral, there are multiple timeline that explains the history of the Cathedral. If you plan to « quickly » visit the Cathedral, I would recommend 10 to 15 minutes. If you plan to read the different fact about the Cathedral, I would definitely add 15 minutes For those who come to Como via the boat, it’s relatively near the boat gates. Last but not least, there are not a lot of tourists that enter the Cathedral
