Attractive cathedral inside and out worth a visit

We enjoyed looking at the architecture inside and out along with paintings and taking in the atmosphere. Well worth a visit to the Duomo and surrounding area.

As others have noted this is a beautiful, simple cathedral with some interesting features. Look out for the maze carved into the marble outside in the portico - it seems absurdly simple in that you can reach the centre in a straight line from the outside of the circle! Inside Tintoretto's "Last Supper" is an interesting slant on the usual... More

The outside is stunning with tier upon tier of marble columns in various designs while inside the ceilings are just beautiful, as are the mosaic floors, detailed sculptures and a Tintoretto...what's not to like?

Beautiful cathedral with an interesting interior. Plenty of stained glass windows and an unusual hexagonal temple halfway down the nave. The painted ceiling is stunning and the pillars and galleries make this a church worth seeing.

I spent far too long here looking at all the paintings and sculptures so didn't manage to see everything I wanted to see in Lucca. Although I've visited innumerable cathedrals and churches in most parts of Italy, this ranked amongst the best.

Lucca as a town must be the most underrated place in Tuscany! It is a beautiful place, easily reached by train from Viarregio, Florence and other places. The walls of the town are some of the most complete of their kind anywhere in the world and the Tower Guinigi which is topped by trees is a MUST. the view from... More
