Unfortunately when we were in genoa it wasn't opened. But the outside was nice and with beautiful detail. It wasn't very busy nearby which was nice and it was even on a Saturday.

Whilst very old and interesting interior is not as stunning as other churches. For architecture experts maybe a higher rating

I loved the statues on the outside of this magnificent Cathedral. The square in front had excellent acoustics showed off admirably by a busker.

This is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Italy. Be sure to go to the 2 museums; one which has the old jewels and silver, and the diocese museum. It is well worth the 6 euro charge. That is the fee for both.

The cathedral has a distinct architectural style. Beautiful inside and out. It is kept a bit dark on the inside, but one is still able to see the great statues and Genoese Gothic style with Romanesque arches. It's a definite must see.

This cathedral is very striking from the outside and has some very interesting sights on the inside. There is an un-exploded bomb from World War 2 and the supposedly the ashes of John the Baptist.. Definitely worth a visit and snapping a few photos of the exterior. Check the back side of the Cathedral for some interesting stones that were... More

My husband was very impressed with this cathedral - I tell you this, because he often says.....not another cathedral!! It is a fully active church, and yet, the art work is amazing. There are ceiling frescoes in a chapel on the north by Luca Cambiaso; a Crucifixion with Saints (St. Sebastian's Vision) by Barocci; in front of the organ is... More

I couldn't believe how breathtakingly beautiful this cathedral was, both inside and out. I cam here as part of a Regent Seven Seas cruise ground excursion and immediately fell in love with everything Genoa. I really had no idea what to expect going in, since I hadn't heard much about Genoa, but the striped marble facade of the building reminded... More
