  • Enjoyed this cathedral after having breakfast in the square. Much better early in the morning when it's cool and the crowds are thin.  more »

  • Fantastic church well worth exploring. Amazed at how old it is and how well maintained it is. Voice Tour guide for extra free helps explain some areas in intricate detail.
  • A beautiful and Picturesque place to visit. Very Sareen with beautiful architecture. We spent quite a while walking around it’s a very interesting place to be. I would thoroughly recommend a visit. You can just soak in the atmosphere and feel just her old is this building is. I can’t wait to visit this place again.
  • Very nice basilica. We didn't go in but the outside is beautiful. Nice cafes and restaurants towards the rear of the building.
  • Beautiful church with many paintings on display. Stunning architecture and was surprisingly not very busy so lots of space to wander round and take your time to view all this place has to offer. Charge to enter the basilica was 3 Euro per person.
  • Small but full of story! All places in Venice are worth visit, there are a lot of churches (tecnically in all Rome) that have a bit of a mystery. The entrance is €3 . But thinks about it that they use the money to preserve this beautiful buildings
