Favorite thing: About two and the half metres below the Duomo lie the remains of an 8th century basilica and another, with no less then five naves, dating from the 11th. Just twenty centimetres under the present floor are the foundations of yet another basilica, with three naves, probably dating from the 13th century. It seems certain that on this site a sacred building existed during the Roman rle of the paleo-Christian era.

Fondest memory: The look at the Duomo's Presbytery.
The Duomo is very huge building and occupy enormous space, so you cannot picture it with one shot only.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
