  • This dome has nothing to envy to those of Florence and Siena. Outside is a marvel to equal to the inside. Wherever the eyes arise, is a treat. We parked in piazza Cahen (to start the tour of the city by the Pozzo di San Patrice, don't miss...) and we went up quietly beautiful Via Cavour to Piazza Duomo. Aesthetic shock is guaranteed! Don't miss the fabulous view of the beautiful surrounding countryside, by going to the bottom of the square.

  • When you admire a show or a phenomenon of nature is easy to describe the emotions you feel when you are admiring a work built by the ingenuity and skill of human hands then you wonder even more and in this case it is. If we think the XIV century did not allow the use of advanced technology, the resulting outcome really leaves you speechless. On a holiday in Umbria you can not miss a spell like this.

  • Amazing Duomo! The visit we made here back in 2015 is one of the most memorable. Highlight were the amazing Signorelli ceiling frescoes, and the most interesting sculptures of the facade's bas-relief. Highly recommended.
  • This place must be seen to be believed wonderful can't say enough there's too much to say consult a Guidebook
  • This Cathedral is a unique piece of art, everything is splendid to visit and see every detail you need to spend time but is worth every second in this place
  • Great Roman cathedral with magnificent Gothic façade - A must-visit of the area. Worth paying the reasonable entrance fee to visit inside.
  • Absolutely amazing breath taking Duomo!!! Must see even if it is out of your way.
