After queueing for over an hour to visit this stunning piece of architecture we were disappointed by the interior. Yes it has presence and majesty, beautiful stained glass windows and a glorious high altar but you couldn't get near any of it. There was just a quarter of the interior open to visitors so all the photos have to be taken from a distance and with a good zoom. I would have liked to have been able to take home some literature but all that was available were free standing audio guides but you would have to queue to use them and certainly nowhere near enough for the number of visitors. There were a few basic fact cards which you could take a photo of. Its free to enter the Duomo but I don't think I would have paid based on my experience today. You can visit the cupola, the campilinio and the baptistery but these are chargeable and you need to buy the combined ticket if doing all three.
