  the main altar of the Duomo in Pisa
by globetrott
 
 

On sunday morning the Duomo is used as a church and guards will check carefully , whether you are a tourist or not.
Any kind of sightseeing will be forbidden then and you will be thrown out of the church immediately.

Better get a ticket and come again in the afternoon in order to see the great interior.

The biggest part of the Duomo was financed by 6 big ships, loaded with gold, that fell into the hands of the troups of Pisa after a battle with the Saracens close to Palermo.

Directions: Inside the Duomo Santa Maria Assunta in Pisa
