  • The entrance to the Cathedral costs €7 (children under 5 years have not paid), they also provide the audioguide in Italian. The Museum is located on the second floor with the stroller is not accessible. Very nice, both outside and inside, but I think the price is a bit steep.

  • Absolutely amazed by the interior. It took my breathe away!! Entrance can be tricky if you do not already know someone who has admission to this church - how it works exactly, I'm not sure. I was told that there's a paid guided tour around, so maybe check it out on forums and book inadvance?
  • Nothing to report, as tourist visitors are not allowed into the Cathedral, which only opens it's doors for services, and they are then locked. Very disappointed. I have never been denied access to a place of worship before. David Vaughan. Poole. U. K.
  • I didn't like that much in all honesty. So can't comment more than this.
  • Nice
  • The church and all places around are very beautiful.
