Good to know

It took so long to complete (nearly six centuries) that ‘Longh cumè la fabrica del Domm' (literally ‘as long as the construction of the Duomo') in Milanese became a term for describing an impossible task.
It divided critics. Those against it complained about the mix of different styles and craftsmanship, which were a product of its long construction.
It has more statues than any other building in the world, with around 3400 detailed sculptures (both in the interior and exterior) depicting saints, prophets and martyrs.
Queues can take up to an hour, given the crowds and security measures. Save yourself the hassle and buy tickets in advance, especially in summer.
The famous golden Madonnina, considered the city's protector, had to be covered in WWII to avoid attracting the attention of Allied bombers.
If you're buying tickets on-site, the smaller office behind the Duomo has fewer people.
Its characteristic white marble came from the quarries of Candoglia, and a new canal system was built for the sole purpose of transporting it here.
The rooftop terrace is unmissable for the architectural details and stunning views. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Alps.
One of the creepiest statues is inside the cathedral, it portrays St Bartholomew with his skin thrown over his shoulders like a jacket.
Dress appropriately. This is a cathedral after all, which means chest, legs down to the knees, and shoulders should be covered.
It's said the Statue of Liberty was inspired by a statue here that looks strikingly similar. Look for the crowned lady on the balcony above the main entrance.
The best time to view the cathedral is at sunset, when it glows with a soft pinkish hue.
Don't make the mistake of waiting in the wrong queue, the rooftop is accessed from the side of the cathedral.

The inside story

Milan’s Cathedral, also called the Duomo of Milan, is located in the city’s central piazza. All the streets of the city seem to radiate from the Piazza of the Cathedral, making it obvious that this area was the center of the city as it was being constructed.

The Cathedral is an immense structure that took nearly 6 centuries to complete and the long construction period consequently went through the various architectural phases. The format and style was modified more than once during its construction, creating a unique, mixed style that produced both positive and negative reactions over history. The construction of the Cathedral was actually finished thanks to Napoleon Bonaparte, who was soon to be crowned King of Italy. According to his orders, the façade was completed in just 7 years and his coronation took place in the Duomo of Milan.
