  • 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
  • Over the years I have been in a lot of cathedrals and churches throughout Europe. I can honestly say this is without a doubt the most impressive I have visited. The artwork and decoration are stunning.
