“Fabulous murals from ~1500, A Great Duomo Visit”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

The paintings on the walls and ceilings are transformative. You feel like you are there 500 years ago and the movie producers must have used these for their costume design. The library also contains priceless books from the middle and upper-middle ages.

“Don't forget to visit it”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The entrance is a little bit hidden behind the church. But be sure to find it and enter the crypt. So much to see. Beautiful fresco's and a look through the glass floor on the construction of the church.

“Definitely worth a visit - don't miss it!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We were delighted that we had visited the crypt with its amazingly well preserved frescoes from the earlier cathedral. We had the all-inclusive Duomo ticket and went to the crypt in the morning on Sunday morning when there was no queue at all! We were especially interested by the view through the glass floor, giving an impression of the height of the earlier building. Despite being the least publicised section of the Duomo, it really added to our overall visit.
