An awesome building but when inside there was nowhere to sit down! Limited access to areas in cathedral.
Look up to see the painting.
Don’t buy a ticket as even waiting in the queue was ok.

The monument is worth a visit. You must stand in line first to understund yuo need a ticket, then to be informed you should have left your backpack somewhere else. Then wait for The right time in the line wich is on your ticket before you can enter. What i raeally miss is information.

If you are Catholic, skip the line and go to morning mass. You can wander a little before the service and see the gorgeous stained glass, and beautiful carvings when the Duomo is relatively empty. We went to the 8:30 am mass. Look for the employee stationed at a side door. And bring a few Euros for the collection---this lovely basilica must cost a lot of money to maintain!

The exterior of the Duomo is truly splendid. The interior is rather a letdown. The space seems dingy; only the frescoes in the cupula grab the eye. Another drawback is that visitors, of whom there are many, are kept out of large parts of the church. A comparison with Santa Maria Novella clearly favours the latter.

Stunning cathedral outside, so much detail. Not to mention the sheer size of the cathedral, it is huge.

We were lucky to be able to attend a service at the cathedral, sitting under the dome, the dome is truly beautiful, the artwork stunning in so much detail. The service lasted 45 minutes. We did not wait to go to the service and it’s open to all.

The stained glass, although is a smaller quantity in the cathedral is still beautiful and worth seeing.
