Very nice cathedral in perfect location. The nicest us the wooden ceiling and pisan black and white marble walls. I like the hidden entrance (exit) to the msin square as a shortcut.

The duomo is full of beautiful paintings mostly dated about 1590 and by different artists, well worth time. Notice the alabaster windows - a local speciality perhaps. The interior is much grander than the plain exterior would suggest with stripey marble pillars.

The Cathedral was very well maintained, the artifacts are explained in many languages, There are areas to light candles and pray your troubles away

This is one of the more modest cathedrals of Tuscany: but that means it is not full of tourists and preserves a calm that is often lost elsewhere.

There are several cathedrals and churches in Tuscany, and even though the Volterra Duomo is impressive in its own way, it probably isn't one of the top 10 churches in the region. We found it to be a little simple. There are much better attractions to enjoy in Volterra, such as the Etruscan museum (recommended!), the roman theatre, or even... More

Really nice town. This is a great Duomo for a provincial little town. It's not worth making the trip especially to see the Duomo but it's worth it if you're in Volterra for the day.

Very pretty, small Cathedral. As of all Cathedrals - make sure you are fully covered if you are wanting to go inside.

Really nice town. The entrance into the back on the Duomo from the main square could be easily missed. It's on the stripy building next to the town hall. Go out the back (which is actually the front door) and have a look inside te baptistry. It's not worth making the trip especially to see the Duomo alone but well... More

The Duomo is a wonderful place to visit-a time to escape from the hectic 21st Century life-for a few minutes anyway. Make sure you are wearing the correct dress - there is a clear code of dress in the entrance.
