What a beautiful place, inside and out. The architecture and artwork are indescribable. Make a visit earlier in the day when less crowded... looks gorgeous in the morning light.

A beautiful building inside and out. What a wonderful gold ceiling! Have a look at the corner nearest the campanile and see the stone stolen from an earlier roman building with the emperors name on it. The stone carving and selection of coloured stones on the west facade is really delicate and beautiful. The mosaic over the altar appears to... More

This attraction in Pisa took my breath away. The Leaning Tower of Pisa gets a lot of attention as a tourist attraction (and rightfully so) but the Duomo Pisa is just as incredible a sight. The beautiful green of the grass and blue of the sky (on a sunny day) makes for the perfect backdrop to this attraction.

An unavoidable Landmark Tower of Pisa with area attractions. Tip: a morning visit is the first time (a beautiful view of the tower).

A great little place to visit out in Pisa! Although like me if youre not an art enthusiast, it all gets very samey. Which is nobodys fault but my own.

The impressive Duomo is built in the center of Piazza dei Miracoli or Piazza del Duomo. The medieval Cathedral of Pisa is the seat of the bishop of Pisa and it is dedicated to Saint Mary of the Assumption. Construction started in 1063 when Pisa was one of the most powerful cities in the Mediterranean area. The architect was Buscheto... More

Because of the more famous 'leaning tower' and adjacent cathedral. But try and make time to see the building - even though its 'free' as part of one of the other attractions. The architecture, paintings and sculptures are very worth any time you can spare, though over enthused by the other wonders, you might miss it. Recommended.

You might want to consider buying a guide book in advance (available in the bookstore behind the leaning bell tower of the cathedral), otherwise you might be frustrated and overwhelmed by all the art that is stuffed inside the cathedral....in addition to the nuances of the architecture. If you have even a passing interest in art and architecture, its easy... More

Beautiful from the outside, never thought it was so magnificent on the inside! The attraction is free when you visit other attractions at Piazza dei Miracoli. When i stepped inside i wasn't aware of how i would fall in love with it! Your eyes won't be enough to see every inch of the Duomo! Loved it all from the floors... More
