Lovely duomo, beautiful interior and free and easy to visit. Some information panels helped us orient ourselves and appreciate the history and art inside.

We kinda happened upon this historical site and glad we did. I had read about it in the guide book but, it wasn't exactly what I was in Modena for. We were in the Piazza by the Duomo and found the way in and were...More

Typical of its age of building. It really deserves a visit, possibly guided as it has lots of different aspects and items not to be overlooked.

It is an imposing building from the outside but it is when you get up close that you see the intricacy and detail of the carvings. Lovely.

The square is lovely, but it is the lions that make this special. There are at least 4 pairs on 4 sides -- and maybe another pair up high. They are wonderful -- each pair is different. The big guys on the piazza are fabulous....More

The tilting spire is mesmerising but as you enter the Duomo you are confronted with scaffolding to the roof. Still, it's worth a visit to the chapel behind the alter.

Lovely church with nice old artworks. Restoration goinng on everywhere so there was not much left for us to see. But, when the work is done, I believe it will be fascinating. Much more interesting than the big cathedrals.

When you go to Modena, you can't miss seeing the Duomo. It's truly lovely. We went at night, when it was closed, but it's great to just walk around and admire the architecture.

We think about 11€ each. Purchase at the front ticket office in front of the Duomo - but walk around to the rear entrances.
