Cathedral visit for sightseeing
Without tickets, nothing can be done here anymore. In addition, there are now far too many visitors. The queues for ticket purchase and then door control can ruin your day. It often takes hours. We recommend buying the tickets for the cathedral in advance or booking a tour. We offer such guided visits. This can then be done without much waiting time.
Ticket sales (also pick-up of reserved tickets) are located in a building on the right side of the cathedral, Piazza del Duomo 12, entrance to Dommuseum.
Audio guides are available for individuals to borrow. Groups of more than 4 people with guides must be equipped with headphones, otherwise the guide must not speak in the cathedral. In the case of religious ceremonies or special events, there may be partial or the complete closure of the cathedral without notice. The main nave of the cathedral is wheelchair accessible.
