“Small but beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lucca's Duomo turned out to be quite a beautiful little surprise, and worth a quick tour, if only to see the last supper by Tintoretto (one the greatest Venetian painters), and the life size marble the funerary monument. We didn't tour the museum, but other tourists we met up with later said it was interesting (less so for families with younger children, I believe).

“see Ilaria del Carretto”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

There was lots of restoration going on which prohibited seeing a lot, but I appreciate what they are doing. Go see Ilaria del Carretto. its a haunting story and a beautiful piece of art. Very touching.

“See Ilaria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

It's worth paying in to visit the Tomb of Ilaria del Carretto which is a masterpiece of sculpture right down to the dog at the woman's feet. You'd swear both were alive.

“Pretty Lame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This duomo doesn't compare in scale, colour, beauty or grandeur to other duomos I have seen over the past few days (Siena and Pisa). In fact Lucca as a whole did nothing for me and I am quite annoyed at Lonely Planet for putting in Italy's top 10 destinations.

“Panoramic Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Superb views of Lucca and surrounding areas. Visit during the week when there are fewer people climbing up the tower. It can become quite congested. Inexpensive, no negatives
