There is fixed audio guide phone which is 1 euro for lots of info in English- I recommend it, although a written leaflet would be better to really absorb all the information. I really enjoyed the ancient crypt- part of... More

The Cathedral is easily reached, apart from market day on a Saturday when you can lose your bearings. Not a vast church but well worth a look for architecture and art works.

A very beautiful and interesting Duomo. Well worth a visit with interesting medieval frescoes, crypts and silver alter. However some later intrusions sometimes ruin the atmosphere but still worth a visit.

This grand church / Duomo is a spectacular one with its outside packed layered alternating dark and white marble colors surmounted with marble boxes in classic design, really beautiful. Entrance through massive sculptured doors into a gilt filled interior packed with masterpieces. Must see when in Pistoia. ...

Dropped by fate into this lovely city we sought relief from the heat of the sun and headed here like so many churches in Italy this is so beautiful but much more calm than many. If only there was more of it.!
