This is one of the many amazing pieces of architecture that you need to see during your trip to Italy. The amount of detail on the inside is stunning and it is a must see when you are in Pisa. There is amazing detail on the inside and you could spend hours in there just looking around. While still large,... More

This cathedral is a beautiful sight and is almost more lovely at night than during the day, though it is unquestionably impressive in the sunlight against a blue sky as well. The exterior is as extraordinary as the interior which sports a cornucopia of artwork and intricate architectural features. The entrance to the cathedral is free but it is controlled... More

Entrance to the Duomo is included both in the price of a visit to the tower, or to the Battistero. I felt that this was a magnificent building from the outside but a number of cathedrals in northern Italy look more impressive from the exterior than they do on the inside, so whilst the Duomo is a great sight from...

The Doumo is so much better than the leaning tower. I think this is the best building on the whole square! The awesome details will just keep you gazing for more than an hour alone. Take the time to look at the huge door. Such a work of art!

a must as part of the Pisa attractions. Remember to look up ! We could only visit the very end part of the Duomo as it was Sunday but looking down the building is wonderous. Photos allowed but no flash.

Not as grand as the Duomo in Florence, but still very impressive. There's some amazing artwork and almost every wall is painted with a frieze, the painted ceilings are incredible. Tip; although technically free to enter, you must have a ticket. You pay for entry into one of the other attractions which gives you a ticket and free access to... More

Most of the attractions nearby will cost you a lot of money but the Duomo is free of charge! You just have to get an entrance ticket at the ticket office to enter. You have to pick a time to get in, so it'll never be too crowded inside which is good. Just walk around the site while you wait... More

From the outside the cathedral and bell tower are impressive. But inside the cathedral I was blown away. Truly spectacular. If you cast your mind back to the period this was built in and the time it took, it makes it even more impressive. I really loved the art work on the ceiling.

There is much more to this attraction than posing with the Leaning Tower. I loved the beautiful, stolen from Florence marble, especially the random, almost comical placement of the blocks. Inside is most impressive, certainly of the most spectacular buildings in its time. You can ignore the tourist trap stalls on the side, unless you need to pick up one... More

19.20.2014 -- 30mins wait in the blazing sun with an ever growing crowd of a hundred or so, for the Sunday mass to end. Whilst waiting I studied the carving on the doors. Love that patina. Wish I have a hand-out since I can't read the Latin. Very ornate and impressive inside too but so crowded it was difficult to... More
