It’s like most large cathedrals but this one lacks atmosphere and art. There are others more worthy of a long visit. Redeeming feature is its presence in the middle of a beautiful piazza that has many other interesting places to see and explore.

It's a great mix of styles and material from different periods. Enjoy some gelato in the steps, which face a nice piazza.

Nothing special regarding the duomo, if you are used to see Italy in general, and Rome in a special place.

This duomo is unique as it was built into an ancient greek temple, the original temple columns are visible both inside and outside the building and are well preserved, I have seen nothing else quite like it

This is a lovely church. When we visited I think there was supposed to be a small charge but no one took our money. Lots to see inside, one never tires of the artistic notes in European churches.
