The exterior of the cathedral is clearly unfinished, like many in central Italy, but the interior is quite breathtaking, especially on a sunny day with the light streaming through the stained glass windows.

You can't miss this duomo as it is in the main square. As churches go, it is worth a visit but there is not much of note to see. It is big as befitting a duomo but certainly not breathtaking.

If you are in Perugia the Duomo is a lovely place to take a break from the crowds and heat. Here you can sit and enjoy a quiet moment and view the various frescos painting and othr artifacts. Remember modesty now shorts or bare shoulders.

The Duomo Perugia is not one of Italy's finest. It feels a bit unfinished and, when compared to Milan, Sienna or Florence, is a bit plain. But, it is free to enter, is not crowded and has some special attractions. The artwork on the ceilings...More
