“Fabulous!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We took our time inside the large church and dome. Excellent site for photos. We suggest you arrive early and pay or the audio tour. It was excellent / useful. The lower area was intriguing!

“Bellisimo”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

A thrive of activity from early morning to late into the evening. Lots of good restaurants with friendly acccommodating staff and good food. You will pay more than if you choose a little trattoria down a side lane. Great coffee everywhere you go.

“worth spending time here”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

my only caution to tourists is to watch out for the locals on bikes. they don't ring a bell to tell you they are coming, they move fast and they don't seem to care that they could run over tourists at any turn...

saying that, we spent a lot of time walking around the piazza and we had wine at a local cafe both days just so we could watch sunset's light on the duomo. it wasn't overpriced and the view was spectacular!

“So many beautiful buildings in one space”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

It quite takes your breath away when you first glimpse the Piazza. All the buildings are stunning, but don't miss the Baptistry, probably the most beautiful ceiling you will ever see.
