I love Citta Alta in Bergamo, it's a wonderful place but the cathedral was a real surprise. The exterior is certainly worth a visit but when you go inside you are just blown away by the opulence of the paintings and spectacular ceiling.

A lovely duomo and an interesting comparison to the cathedral next door. A visit downstairs is definitely worth a visit.

It is a beautiful church with lots of chapels. One of the best one is dedicated to the S. Papa Giovanni XXIII. It is beautifully ornamented. It is a place for meditation and prayer. It is worth visit.

I've been here twice, but i happened to be here during services. The singing goes through your bones, it sounds angelic. This Duomo is pretty impressive on the inside, so do not let the appearance deceive you.

Situated to the left of the Basilica, entering the cathedral and duomo is the easily accessible when walking around the square. The interior is beautiful and has stunning frescoed ceilings and cappelas. Free leaflets are available as you enter which give information on the different areas inside.

A bit shy facade, what cannot be said regarding the interior - the altar area in particular. While not as intransigent as the Basilica (what is an upside for me, actually) - definitely rich. Some marble choices seem controvelsiar however and comparing the floors of sacral buildings to some other Italian locations, missed opportunity.

I'm not a fan of visiting churches, so probably I didn't appreciate it as much as I should have. It's free, near other attractions and even enjoyed visiting it.

The Duomo was interesting to see though not as richly endowed as the Basilica. We were lucky to hear the organist trying out the organ during our visit.

There is so much to see inside this cathedral, you just can't stop taking pictures until you realize the reality can't be caught on photos.
