It's impossible not to see this extraordinary monument, it's a great example of medieval architecture rendered almost completely on marble with thee highest tower in the little city. You can visit its museum daytime except during services. The interior will transport you to the gothic period and show you the times when the city was very rich and powerful. The... More

A beautiful historic old building in Lucca free to look around with a small charge to access the tower. Well worth a visit.

Having booked into our Hotel it was a 3 minute walk to the Cattedrale. Having bought our tickets (no discounts for Seniors!) we spent a delightful 30 minutes touring the magnificent and extensive interior. Religious history abounded and there was much art in the form of paintings and sculptures to be admired. Well worth the time inside.

A grand cathedral - well worth a visit. The art was incredible. We were just sorry that we missed (by less than a week) the opportunity to experience the Holy Face of Lucca festival.

I enjoy walking alone in such places, it brings back to the old times, give a chance to dream or remembering famous hystoric personalities

Worth seeing even with €3 a person entry. Lucca is compact so there is no difficulty in finding it. Nothing much else to say about it!

I visited Lucca and the heavens decided on this day that it was going to pour. I had planned on doing the city wall and piazzas but torrential rain had me heading inside and I'm really glad I visited the Duomo. The history and artwork are amazing. Worth a visit. I didn't climb the tower due to the weather.

We love Lucca! not to big easy to walk- especially the wall surrounding the city- also easy walk from the train station- great restaurants, shops, wine bars- a highlight for any visitor is the Cathedral di San Martino - a beautiful church on a large piazza just inside the walls.
