We have been to several Duomos throughout Italy, but they can be vast and overwhelming in size. Although the outside is being cleaned at this time (after 350 years it's to be expected) the inside is gorgeous. Even if you aren't religious you have to...More

When we visited Ferrara, the front facade of the Basilica was undergoing maintenance, but what first struck as a particular feature of the church building was, that along the side is a gallery with a number of small shops. Inside the Basilica is impressive. This...More

Lots paintings and architecture to take time to see, but a little short on the lighting so viewing some parts was difficult.

This Basilica is quite lovely. It is quite ornate with stunning art adorning its walls and a great feeling a peace inside. The craftsmanship within this and in fact all of these old Italian churches is mind-blowing, so special.

This imposing cathedral is under wraps at the moment, although it is still possible to visit. The restoration is seriously needed - evidenced by the amount of netting inside the building to catch falling plasterwork. However, it was really interesting to be able to visit...More
