Tel: 39 031 265 244's insider take:

Two thousand years of Como history are depicted on the delightfully crowded facade of this 14th-century cathedral. You'll see sculptures of the usual saints and martyrs, but the best placement is given to Como's most famous sons: Ancient Roman scholars Pliny the Elder and his nephew Pliny the Younger flank the main door. Inside the Duomo are an intricately carved wooden altarpiece from 1492 and a series of 16th-century tapestries designed by Baroque masters including Alessandro Allori and Giuseppe Arcimboldo. The cathedral's dome was added in 1744 by the noted Sicilian architect Filippo Juvarra.

Open daily 7:30 am to noon and 3 to 7 pm.
