  • Ben ordered in scenic surroundings (the lower Church of the Cathedral), you can admire a number of operas, including some are interesting enough. From the Museum, take the tourist visit climbing to the top of the Bell Tower: from up there is beautiful circular panorama!

  • I've been several times to this Museum and now we are back at the small but fascinating exhibition on the latest 12 Popes. the environment is very attractive because it is located underneath the dome and then centrally located and easy to reach. also visit the exhibits with a fascinating archaeological visit as it allows you to see the remains of the 3 existing side by side with the current Cathedral churches as well as the remains of a Roman House with flooring riscaldamentoa floor. as soon as you enter the volunteer guides not only welcome kindly visitors but you offer to accompany your visit and provide explanations about what is exposed. contrary to what usually happens there are no fixed times for visits. anytime you come someone is available to accompany and this in itself is very nice. In addition, there is a considerable preparation for these people who truly deserve a big thank you for taking the time to provide. the exhibition that grows in one big room you can see several paintings and a certain value, monstrances, chalices, reliquaries and silverware varies; vestments; a baptismal font; some statue and some elements of sacred ornaments. every exhibit comes with price tag and there are some simple and clear information panels, well made. even without a guide you can visit fine but having the time is recommended enjoy as they offer these people really smart. the tour lasts about an hour. at the bottom on the left there is a small Hall used for temporary exhibitions. currently-extended until 26 February though should have ended on 29 January-hosts the exhibition "pontifex". the set up is neat: 12 pyramid-shaped display cases exhibit a dozen exhibits each belonged to recent popes, the unification of Italy today, each accompanied by a tag. all very neat and clean. skull caps can be seen, with certificate stating that son belonged to that particular Pontiff, relics, letters, photos, invitations, undergarments and vestments, rosaries and more special objects like hair, the Quill and the gauze that covered a plague in c by Pope Pius IX. beautiful Red Hat good Pope! upon completion of the exhibition you can see a contemporary painting depicting the Lamentation over the dead Christ, two statues and a central showcase where bricks of the Holy doors of Saint Peter, Saint Paul and santa maria maggiore. for each Pope is a short Panel with his biography. very simple and Basic. also for the view you can enjoy the guided tour. Mrs., really prepared, explained the main features of each Pope, framing it historically and telling some anecdote simpatico. It lasts about an hour, including the time it takes to see the exhibits at the end of the guided tour because the explanation is not focused on those you can safely enjoy yourself. really highly recommended is the Museum that this exhibition, which aims to raise funds and also exhibits belonged to various popes in anticipation of the opening in Padua to a museum dedicated to this theme. the Museum is open on Wednesdays from 14 to 18 and Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 18. the cost of the ticket and the view is of 5 €, free with Museum subscription. at the ticket office you can also buy your ticket for the climb to the Bell Tower located just outside the Museum. There are about 200 steps. It's not particularly difficult but I suffer from Vertigo and I had problems almost at the top and I had to get off because at some point you find yourself pretty exposed. for those who suffer is better do not stand alone. the scenery looks beautiful anyway. tickets cost € 3, 7 the cumulative with the Museum. free with Museum subscription.

  • paying 5 euros in Turin you can visit an interesting place, namely the Museo Diocesano di Torino. It is the Diocesan Museum, the main exhibits are objects of decoration items, icons and other sacred things. Exhibits are not very much, but they are interesting and informative.
