Beautiful frescoes and masterpiece works of art follow the story of the city and the cathedral. So many gorgeous paintings and sculptures and even mosaics to see. They even have a nice little bookstore and information center.

The first part is located directly under the Duomo and it is interesting to see the ceilings. The first floor contains papal apartments, with spacious rooms, tall ceilings, now filled with large, beautiful religious works of art and other relics, statues, etc.

This is more of a small art gallery than a museum with most of the subject matter being nudes in either statue or pencil drawings.
