The exterior of the cathedral is clearly unfinished, like many in central Italy, but the interior is quite breathtaking, especially on a sunny day with the light streaming through the stained glass windows.

You can't miss this duomo as it is in the main square. As churches go, it is worth a visit but there is not much of note to see. It is big as befitting a duomo but certainly not breathtaking.

If you are in Perugia the Duomo is a lovely place to take a break from the crowds and heat. Here you can sit and enjoy a quiet moment and view the various frescos painting and othr artifacts. Remember modesty now shorts or bare shoulders.

Nothing Perugia seems quite planned properly. The cathedral butts onto other buildings and the brick facing is clearly rough and unfinished - after centuries. The effort went into the inner decorations. Be careful, it is closed for long lunch break.

The sheer raw size of the Duomo is overwhelming. We took time to study the architecture and the plays of light in the interior. It was also a welcome relief from a hot day. Whitebeard83

A stately and gorgeous building bathed in October sun. In a lovely square where the architecture is typically Italian.

This is the Duomo in Perugia on the Piazza. We climbed the steps and entered the church but mass was in progress so we could not explore the church fully. The outside has a beautiful marble facade.

The Duomo Perugia is not one of Italy's finest. It feels a bit unfinished and, when compared to Milan, Sienna or Florence, is a bit plain. But, it is free to enter, is not crowded and has some special attractions. The artwork on the ceilings...More
