I pasted through but it was closed... four months ago. From the outside was gorgeous!!! My boyfriend's uncle said that it was bad luck we missed it because inside is very nice. He lives in Mantua. Nevermind... next time

We were able to find a parking space right by it at about 8 am, but didn't know it's the Duomo, until I looked up photos on TripAdvisor. I didn't see any signage outside the building. The sign is there after you walk in to...More

The church is rather stark inside compared to other churches, but don't forget to press on and see all the different adjoining rooms and chambers.

We visited the Roman Theater and the Guisti Garden then made our way back over the Ponte Pietra and headed to the Duomo. The walk to get there was very quaint and picturesque. The Duomo started in the 12th century and was built over a...More

Cattedrale di San Pietro is a roman catholic cathedral in the city center in Piazza Sordello and is a seat of the bishop. The front part is baroque and has gothic tower, so is very interesting for the mixure of styles. Interior is very beautiful.

I love the different exterior architectural features of the Cathedral. The interior is even more interesting and worth a visit. I was amazed at the number of pillars and the artwork is beautiful.

The photos do this attraction justice. If you are in Mantova this is worth seeing. However, if you expect to be overwhelmed by the size of this Duomo then you will be disappointed. Small but beautiful.

Currently I live in an apartment behind the duomo, and wake to the bells every morning -- very cheery. It's not an immensely imposing structure, but it is attractive and cozy. The facade dominates piazza Sordello, the main square of Mantua. The interior has many...More
