“Beautiful Cathedral”

Cattedrale di San Pietro
Ranked #14 of 334 things to do in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The cathedral is situated next to shops in the main shopping street so it is difficult to stand by and admire the outside like some churches in open squares. However inside it is beautiful and is definitely worth adding to an itinerary of Bologna.

The Cattedrale is one of the biggest ones in Europe I guess. The place is quite and calming. We just visited the place while we were walking to Piazza Maggiore. The atmosphere was so peaceful...

It's a shame that this cathedral is tight in next to many buildings as you cannot really grasp the size of it. The interior is definately worth a visit. I am a newly coverted agnostic but my eyes filled with tears when I walked as there was organ music being played and with the beauty of the church I felt overhwelmed. Also it's free.

Not only a breathtaking church there is also an amazing collection of carefully curated objects displayed in a well thought out set of small galleries. Textiles, metalwork & sacred objects all compete for your attention. And one of the best things is (or worse, depending upon your point of view) it's not crowded; so you can linger & admire as long as you like.

Take time to see this special collection located off a small hallway before you reach the courtyard.

Happened to pass this when a service was being conducted. Very atmospheric and peaceful. On Saturday they encourage tourists to come and see the cathedral and also an organist plays which was lovely.
