Nice enough but really will not detain you for more than a few minutes. Don't make a special stop but if you are passing. Did seem very dark inside and take care with steps to crypt as easy to trip.

We visited this lovely old church and donated funds to visit the oldest part down below. The marble pillars and alcoves are amazing.

Thus is our second visit and last time there was a craft stall inside but this time nothing. So although it is an interesting baptistry it would not detain you long.

It's in a lovely place nearby a very romantic promenade by the lake and nearby shops for some charming local souvenirs like local wine and grappa.
