The Cathedral has been redecorated in recent years and so reflects a variety of styles from the different centuries of its existence. Quite fitting for a city that has 'changed hands' over the centuries. A hike up the stairs to the bell tower gives great...More

We visited this cathedral as part of our Italy tour, and without a doubt it was one of the most memorable locations for me. The jaw-dropping beauty of the church and the history that goes with it was a real treat for me. If religious...More

It is a long walk up the hill from the Roman amphitheater to the San Giusto area, but well worth the effort. Four items stand-out: 1. The views of the city are impressive, 2. The cattedrale is unique. It is an asymmetric blend of two...More

Reaching the Cathedral and the grounds does involve a steep walk if you decide to take the time to walk. You can of course take a taxi which would cost about 8 euros from the city or there is a bus which costs about 1.50...More
