The artifact is beyond any expectation, but the church staff is really rude and they do hate everyone - not only tourist

The Dumo is big, very big. It looks like a fortress or castle from the outside and you enter through big doors.There are statues guarding the entrances Inside, very surprisingly, the church is rather bare and simple. There are two lovely pieces of art worth spending time on and also some lovely wooden work that forms the choir This was... More

Absolutely loved the Cathedral! There is a mix of spirituality from middle ages, renaissance and baroque/gothic. Wonderful stained glass windows.

While this church is easy to miss from the outside, inside it is filled with beautiful art and architecture. Most definitely worth a visit. We were there while a wedding was going on so it limited our visiting of some of the areas of the church, but what we saw was well worth a visit.

We visited Perugia for the first time not really knowing what to expect. Our guide book definitely downplayed the duomo so we had no idea what to expect. The outside is plain when compared with so many others in Italy but it is like Monreale in Sicily, inside the plain stone wrapper are wonders to discover. They have Mary's wedding... More

I had the pleasure to go to Mass in the Duomo and the Organ Music was unbelievable. The organist, a young man in maybe his early 30's, played the Organ as if he had been playing for decades. What a wonderful addition to the Mass. The interior of the Duomo was spectacular, as most of the Churches in Europe. If... More

The 14th century Cathedral (Duomo) in the heart of the historic centre, is fascinating as well as beautiful. Legend has it that the wedding ring belonging to The Virgin Mary found its way here in the 15th century. A series of miracles surrounding the ring resulted in it being hailed as a holy relic... whether or not the facts are... More

One of the most beautiful churches we ever saw. The simple architecture, the rich façade, the top class frescos: we went back again to see this incredible beauty twice.

The outside architecture is very impressive, but do visit the inside. The ceiling frescoes are some of the most beautiful Christian depictions I have ever seen. I found it very interesting that Michaelangelo visited this church to draw inspiration for the work he had been hired to do at the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican.....his is far superior (IMO), but...
