Standing in the middle of this amazing building and listening to full organ is a life changing experience. The organist was playing a contemporary work to full organ, then adding chemades and ending with a 32 bombarde that shook the floors. There is no question that there IS a God!

We arrived at the Duomo after opening hours, but then managed to look local enough to be allowed to sit through a one hour afternoon service (security screeners will not let tourist in so you need put cameras and maps away). This was highly rewarded: as the service was over Widor´s Toccata was played. The cathedral is insanely beautiful and grand.

In the morning palms (olive branches) were blessed in the Baptistry then "processed" over to the Duomo where Mass was conducted. Later in the day we attended Vespers with Gregorian chant and attended mass in the pews arranged directly under the dome!

Huge queue to go up to the top of the Dome but both outside and in it really is one of the architectural wonders of the world! We also walked round the outside with a full moon shining down - brilliant!
