Stunning front façade but not as interesting inside as the basilica - still well worth a visit though!

The Cathedral of San Pietro is one of the oldest buildings in the city and the main place of worship. The exterior is a mish-mash of Carrera marble and brick. It is interesting that the Cathedral is dedicated to a Saint (Peter the Apostole) and...More

The detail and richness of the decoration are the striking things here. And the sheer scale of it. A peaceful yet magnificent place regardless of your faith.

The church is rather stark inside compared to other churches, but don't forget to press on and see all the different adjoining rooms and chambers.

We visited the Roman Theater and the Guisti Garden then made our way back over the Ponte Pietra and headed to the Duomo. The walk to get there was very quaint and picturesque. The Duomo started in the 12th century and was built over a...More
