Do this early in trip. Paid €5 for museum and bell tower view. The museum bit is kinda dull and small, the church itself tho is nice but main attraction is view from top of bell tower.

This is probably wonderful but end of Sept 2012 was being renovated so restricted access, scaffolding etc. Hard to tell.

This church has a rather simple façade. It is more beautiful on the inside with a carved marble altar and pulpit. It was built in the mid 1500’s in the Gothic style, but it has undergone several reconstructions. Most of what you see today dates...More

The monumentally huge entrance in the neo-classical style is a complete nonsense that spoils your entrance to the church as once inside it is entirely different: rather sombre grey stone, huge columns and rather understated except for the altar front which is a riot of...More

The approach from the cobbled street is interesting - a classical portico with pillars. Inside it is much like many other Italian churches. There was CD of organ music playing although the Sunday morning service had only just finished. A praise band was packing away...More

Smaller than most, it was still a pleasant 20 minutes spent walking around the cathedral. Restoration work was taking place when we visited, so we couldn’t access certain areas. Also it is free to enter.

Well worth a little time to look around, though far less lavish than the catherdrals and churches of mainland Italy. The building itself is not the most attractive from outside but falls into place inside with great sweeping arches and subsidiary altars.

Very nice cathedral, we enjoyed walking around for a few minutes and getting out of the sun. Worth having a look.
