The church is open at times when there is no Mass & that is the best time to visit. Smaller than other Duomo, without the side chapels where mass is often said. So you'd best visit when there are no religious services. When you do go in, you find beautiful terra-cotta by Della Robbia & sculpture by Michelozzo and Donatello... More

It is a working church so visitors should be quiet. We bought combined ticket to see two buildings. The lady checked our tickets and put the lights in so we could see the the paintings better. Very beautiful stained glass windows. On the door there is sign "no photography". I did not take any photos because of that. But may... More

Nice stores, Benetton, tallys , calzedonia ... The bars are not expensive like other duomos. i dont give a 5 stars because its boring where the duomo is at, no italian music or italian vibe.

Prato is not a welcoming town, to say the least, and the church is not worth the shlep. Do some more wine tasting anywhere in Chianti instead

The striped exterior (of white marble from Carrara and green from Prato) is very striking, and it is enhanced by the beautiful sculptures, including the pulpit by Donatello, and the panel by Della Robbia above the entrance. Admission to the cathedral is free, but to get close to the Filippo Lippi frescoes behind the altar, visitors must pay a fee.... More

The outside is beautiful! I was particularly amazed by the balcony! The nr. one attraction in Prato for me. Did not enter the church though.

Probably one of the best cycle of affreschi in Tuscany. Filippo lippi at his best. Don't forget also to visit the museum of sacred art close to duomo, whit Donatello's formelle.

Loved the stain windows and well preserved frescoes. Be prepared to pay and extra €3.00 for a close up view and information.

I have a passion for art history so this was obviously going to have the 'wow' factor for me but it really is truly breathtaking. There is a very unusual (well I haven't seen one before) pulpit on the outside of the building. The church holds a reliquary of the belt of the Virgin Mary, held in a side chapel... More
