Of course very touristic, but the views on the square are incredible. Highly recommend climbing the duomo. Make sure to book online way in advance to skip the +3 hours line, since they work with time slots allowing a limited amount of people each 30...More

We spent a quiet afternoon strolling through the ancient town of Pistoia. Extremely well preserved ancient building without the crowds of Florence. If you need to unwind from the hectic hustle and bustle of the big name sights this is a lovely place to sit...More

We took a train to Pistoia and spent a pleasant few hours exploring the town. the heart of the town is the Piazza, the Cathedral and Duomo and the Baptistry. A very ancient town with it's own charm but without the hordes of tourists.

Piazza del Duomo is located in the very centre of the historical part of Pistoia. It is a very nice square but very similar to many other squares you can find in historical Italian cities.

The cathedral plaza of Pistoia looks authentically medieval as at least three of its sides are formed by medieval edifices. Those are Palazzo Pretorio and the baptistery, Palazzo dei Vescovi and the cathedral itself on the southern side, and Palazzo del Comune. Two other buildings,...More

I am biased but i just love this Piazza. It hosts numerous events and a variety of local festivities and even when completely empty it has a special feel.

We were spending a few days in Lucca and decided to visit another Tuscan town and travelled to Pistoia by train. Well worth a visit since the architecture is most interesting particularly the Piazza del Duomo. It was market day but this simply added to...More
