It’s ok. I prefer the basilica if you have to choose which to visit - my partner made up a rule. We can only visit one religious location in each town. We are both atheists lol

The interior of Cattedrale (Duomo) di Bergamo e Battistero is overwhelming. Pictures everywhere, lot's of gold - almost too much!

I've been to many duomos and cathedrals in the world and this place is the far one of the most extravagant and best kept secret place to visit. You will take many hours looking at the interior of the cathedral and it will literally take...More

You can buy a cover-all ticket in the building opposite the Duomo. Worth the cost. The museum is a bit underwhelming to be honest, just a series of murals.
