Lonely Planet Experience: Skip the Line Duomo & Hidden Gems Tour

Take a look at the controversial building Torre Velasca, considered by some a masterpiece of modern architectures and by others a horrible construction. Move on to the University of Milan next.

Located on Via Brolo a hidden gem, the church is unusual in many ways: its architecture and ossuary chapel are worth seeing.

The highlight of your tour is your next stop, the Gothic style Milan Duomo. The cathedral is the fifth largest in the world and the largest in all of Italy. Once you’re there, admire its magnificent exterior.

Proceed inside to the cathedral itself and admire the different styles of artwork from Modern to Medieval. Inside the church, you can find 3400 statues and 55 stained glass windows. Hear about the 600-year history and be amazed by the main altar.
