A small group managed to get in before closing to tour the museum and baptistery. The museum was very interesting, the guide wonderful. But the real treat was the baptistery. Set below the present city and full of tombs, a wonderful history lesson.

Battistero is from second century, and even a museum deserve a visit. Near Baptistery there is a old tower, the view on the old town deserve the fatigue to climb up
