There is a fee now to enter into the Duomo but if you want to see the last supper by Tintoretto then you have to bite the bullet and pay. It is an amazing painting so I don't mind but there is other stuff to see as well such as the volta santo which is an image of Christ allegedly... More

The facade of this Romanesque cathedral is very intersting and the interior contains many important works of art including The Last Supper by Tintoretto and the famous Shrine of the Holy Face by Civitali

I visited in May with a group of friends and for a small charge we were able to climb the very manageable stairs. It is open inside so much easier than the tower access in Florence although albeit not so high. The views are beautiful and the photo opportunity excellent. The rooftop terraces with their greenery in this busy little... More

We stopped in Lucca while on a road trip from Somewhere in Italy to somewhere in France. At first it didn't look like much. Big parking lots and a bus station. But that's because it is a walled city that was walled up hundreds of years before cars. Once you enter the city on foot, you are immediately transported back... More

Not the grandest cathedral I've been too but very beautiful and well cared for. Set in a delightful setting and well worth a visit when in Lucca.

During our visit of Lucca, we visited the cathedral. Outside looks nice but in my opinion nothing special in comparison with the cathedrals of Firenze, Sienna,..... About the inside....I was not overwhelmed.

The facade columns are all different; different designs, different colors. Love it! There is a Lucca legend as to why (are they all design ideas, none of which were paid for?) but it doesn't really matter. It's a beautiful design decision. Inside the church, the Holy Face of Jesus, believed to be carved by Nicodemus, a contemporary of Christ. And... More
