“And you can pray...”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This is a beautiful church. And I've been on the tour. But what I like the most is that people can go in a side door if they just want to pray. What I don't like is that you have to pay to visit the tomb of the little saint buried in the area of the excavations -- Santa Reparata...

“Worth the ticket”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

The ticket included the Baptistry, the Museum, the Museum under the Cathedral, the bell tower and climbing to the top of the dome. Don't do the climbs if you are really out of shape!

“A must.....”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Even if you have walked to the top of the bell tower be brave & go up the Duomo too as it is not the same. Narrow of course & a big climb but worth it!! The inside is rather dissapointing from the ground but if you walk up inside the Duomo you get a much better view & appreciation of the painted ceiling. The outside of the Duomo,bell-tower & baptistary are just spectacular. Best to visit early in the morning before the hoards arrive & the front view is blocked by hoards of schoolchildren.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

What a beautiful church and baptistry. The green and white colors on the outside were unexpected and very beautiful, as were the baptistry doors.
