There is no doubt that Milan (Milano) is one of the world’s fashion capitals and a dream destination for fashionistas, yet many travel to this European city in northern Italy to admire its breath-taking architecture in person and not just by scrolling through Instagram photos. Milan Cathedral, known as Duomo di Milano, is arguably the landmark that attracts the largest number of tourists and visitors due to the unique features of its whimsical façade and the chapters of history preserved among its walls.
The Duomo Cathedral is located in Piazza del Duomo (Duomo Square), only 9 kilometres away from Linate airport (LIN) and about 50 from Malpensa airport (MXP), but the transport connections available contribute to a smooth journey from either point to your hotel near Milan Cathedral. If you are commuting to Duomo di Milano during your trip, we recommend you use the tram lines 2, 14, 15, 16, 24 or 27, the red and yellow lines of the subway system, bus line 73 if you fly to Linate or the Malpensa Express train if you arrive through Malpensa.
