Your ticket to climb the tower also covers entrance to the cathedral. This is a "must do" also. A very beautiful building in itself that must get relegated in importance being next to the Leaning Tower. It is huge inside, & it has the most amazing ceiling along with many other amazing features. The walls of the nave are covered... More

Cathedral is beautiful, located next to the leaning tower. Entrance is free, but you have to get tickets to prevent too many people enter at the same time. Knees and shoulders have to be covered, but cloth for this purpose provided.

You can't just leave after the Leaning Tower, you must see Cathedral of St. Ranieri. This church is so beautiful. It's worth of your wait outside. Must cover your knees and shoulders to get in. Don't worry, they have fabric that can lend you to cover them up ;-)

I booked tickets to skip line before our visit to PISA and the ticket had entrance to Cathedral also. Had we not seen this beautiful place, we would have missed some thing important on our trip to Italy. I recommend to visit this place.

This Cathedral is breathtaking! This is somewhere I would definitely recommend seeing during your time in Pisa. It is conveniently located right next to the Leaning Tower and so it is easy to visit at the same time. Both are beautiful.

You will need tickets to enter - get them the same time as your Tower tickets. Beautiful cathedral and many lovely sites to see inside. Unfortunately tourists talking loudly, children running and screaming mostly ruin what should be a quiet contemplative visit. Please people - this is a place of worship have some respect!!

Very impressive, a nice and cool break on a hot summer day in Pisa. If you’re there to see the leaning tower, this is a great "bonus". Make sure to get tickets right away (free) also if you don’t want to buy tickets for the leaning tower. To avoid too many visitors at the same time, tickets are issued for... More

This is a very nice cathedral with great art anywhere you see. You will not need to pay for an entrance…it is free but you will need to get a ticket (free) at the office. If you have a ticket for the Leaning tower then that will be good to get to the cathedral as well. Look at the amazing... More
