“if it says don't take photos, DON'T take photos!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

There are some beautiful artworks here and the ceiling is similar in style to the one in Florence. However, for me, cathedrals are often spoilt by tourists - it says no photos, so why do they stand around snapping with their fancy phones and destroying any kind of serenity that some of us might be looking for. Nice cathedral, shame about the tourists!

“Impressive even with partial access.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I was disappointed that restoration had blocked off certain parts; and I was unable to point out those incredible Murano chandeliers to my husband; but the spirit,history and beauty still speak loudly for themselves

“Lucca Duomo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lovely square with beatiful Cathedral and tower unlike any other in Italy. Missing a lot of exterior statues but still striking. Tower unusually placed adjacent to the front facade and finished half in Stone and half in marble.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

We were staying at a place nearby for a couple of nights and a friend took us to this city. It's nice to see if you're already in Lucca but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

“Simply Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Well worth a visit and we were lucky enough to enter when the choir were rehearsing - such fantastic acoustics and a real treat. Make sure you look up!
