Important information for your visit

> Admission includes 1 free entry only. It is not permitted to re-enter after leaving.

> Do not write anything that covers or deletes the printed text and/or QR code on the ticket - they are elements that have tax value and are essential in order to pass through the access gates.

> There are no areas for luggage or lockers inside the exhibition site, visitors are therefore strongly discouraged to bring baggage, especially if large. Outside of the site, at Fiera Milano in Rho, luggage deposit spaces with limited capacity will likely be provided for a fee.

> Smoking allowed only in restricted areas.

> Taking pictures and making audio and video recordings for private and domestic purposes only is permitted, whereas any photography or recording for commercial purposes, for selling, granting of use, publishing or other commercial activity is not permitted.

> The visitor gives his consent to be photographed, filmed or recorded in the area of the Universal Exposition by EXPO or by EXPO-appointed third parties. EXPO or third parties appointed by EXPO are entitled to broadcast, publish, use and grant use of photographs, pictures, movies, recordings of the Universal Exposition that contain the visitor without the latter being entitled to any remuneration.

 

Safety Standards

> The access control system allows a single entry corresponding to a single QR ticket code. EXPO will not, under any circumstances, allow access to any duplicate tickets. In case an EXPO ticket was mistakenly or maliciously printed two or more times and distributed to two or more persons, only the first person who shows up at the access gates will be allowed inside the exhibition site. Any other holders of the same ticket will be stopped at the entrance and will not have access. We therefore recommend you keep tickets you already printed as well as the ticket you receive via email after your purchase very carefully.

> At the entrance to EXPO, safety inspections according to the standards laid down for international airports will be carried out. All visitors provide their consent for safety inspections before and during the visit of the Universal Exposition. Security controls include limited personal (body) search of the visitor, inspection of baggage or other personal effects carried by the visitor.

  • The Treasure Room and the Crypt of San Carlo Borromeo can only be reached via stairs with handrails.
  • The early Christian Baptistery, due to its underground location, can be reached only by stairs and features a circular path with uneven pavement, many steps, and passageways measuring a minimum of 63cm/25”. The early Christian Baptistery can be reached by visitors with mobility disabilities through the mezzanine of the MM1 metro station.

IMPORTANT – Code of Conduct

The monumental complex of the cathedral of Milan is above all a place of worship. Visitors are asked to respect some simple rules while in the Cathedral:

  • Appropriate clothing is required – no bare arms/shoulders or bare legs
  • Please respect the silence
  • Large bags and suitcases are not permitted inside the cathedral. The Cathedral does not have a bag checkroom.
  • No food or drinks of any kind
  • Do not touch the works of art
  • Do not use mobile phones
  • Do not use LASER pointers
  • No animals allowed
  • Strollers and baby carriages are permitted inside the Cathedral. On the Terraces, strollers and baby carriages must be kept closed, as steep stairs and very narrow passages would make it impossible to use them.
  • All terrace walkways have handrails and protection systems. However, children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult and held by the hand throughout the entire visit.
  • Booking and rental of the headset systems are required for all groups from 5 to a maximum of 50 people, excluding the tour leader and guide.

 

Photographs and Video:

  • Individual visitors entering the Duomo and wishing to take photos strictly for personal use, and not for profit or study purposes, must purchase an ID wristband (€ 2.00) as proof of authorization. The word "photos" indicates any form of picture/image taken using any type of equipment, including film or digital cameras, mobile phones, tablets and smartphones.
  • The wristband can be purchased directly at the distribution point located inside the cathedral, at the north nave entrance. The wristband must be worn at all times and presented upon request of security personnel.
  • The photo wristband can also be purchased online and collected, upon presentation of the payment voucher, at the Group Welcome Point located under the archway of the Church of Santa Maria Annunciata in Camposanto in Piazza Duomo 18, before entering the cathedral.
  • Groups that have been pre-booked and supplied with microphone and headset systems by the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo are not required to pay for the photo wristband.
