Look for a curious collection of columns and a 13th-century labyrinth at . Its grand apse and campanile date back to 1063, while the Gothic nave and transepts are from the 14th century. According to local legend, the city held a contest among artists for the best column. Instead of choosing a winner, the townspeople decided to take them all without paying the artists. The labyrinth on the right pier of the portico is thought to predate the famous Chartres maze. You may even catch an organ performance, which will be enhanced by the stone structure's incredible acoustics.

As others have said, the view from the campanile is spectacular. There's a cutout in the "suicide guard" to the right when looking north where you can take photos without the metal bars marring your pictures. Also nice view of the cathedral's front columns from the level halfway up to the top.
Beautiful cathedral. A similar small version of the Pisa Cathedral. The walk around the Duomo is nice
