In the typical architecture from the North of Italy, the Duomo stands in a tiny Piazza or square, where it seems encastrated because of its huge size. The exterior is really nice, in white marble. The interior is súper dark and sad.

Its really big, you can go inside and see all the religious art if its what you like, its just in the center of the city so you have a lot of restaurants nerby.

Seeing great churches should not be missed on any European tour. Every place has its own history. To linger awhile witnessing its architecture is more different than just looking at photos . To have a tour guide , a local expert , would really help in appreciation of its beauty. There is no fees, no tight security checks, not much... More

The Cathedral is very nice both from the outside and inside, which is definitely worthy a visit. The interior is a bit dark and there are few decorations according to the style of the cathedral. However, the painted windows are very nice, the few paintings are very interesting, and the organ is amazing.
