So much to see and admire. The museum is particularly well displayed. The range and quality of art works make for a rewarding visit.

If you visit the Duomo, then do cross over and see all the wonderful things in this museum. The gold ornaments for the Holy Cross were stunning.

The cathedral is a must visit. Buy the combo ticket that gives you access to the Cathedral, the Tower and the Archeological dig under the Bapistry (and its tower). Spectacular city views from the Cathedral Tower, but the real treasures are inside the Cathedral.

We found the museum somewhat boring. Maybe if you are into religion it may be of interest to you. The were a few special artifacts but this was not really our scene.

We really enjoyed the treasures in this museum which was made more understandable with a good audioguide. The 1st floor has some gorgeous illuminated manuscripts, a couple of which have the large print needed by the choir during the mass since they only had one...More
