  • Very interesting Cathedral for some architectural peculiarities that incorporate different styles and eras. Beautiful interiors with impressive frescoes. The ascent on foot (504 steps!) on top of the Torrazzo, worth the hassle.

  • Thanks to the Guide, I fully understand both the history of the city and the Cathedral, much more interesting than seeing just a layman's perspective, ecclesiastical structure and artistic details explained.

  • This is one of the few places where you can find an astronomical clock. There is some amazing working to make this work. This clock has stairs you can climb to see the clock work. You can also climb higher to get an overview of the city. Would love to come back and explore more of the city.
  • Large and lovely church. Crypt and tower are a must. When each person arrives at the top of the tower it is always Wow! So amazing!
