This is one small room in this gorgeous Cathedral, and you could easily walk by if you did not realize it was there. Apparently this room was closed off for hundreds of years, so the frescoes were not exposed to candles, people, etc. So when...More

you can see everything from the door way, it is just 20 or so large print books behind glass. The walls and ceiling are well painted

When you visit the Cathedral don't miss this room. If you're into art then you'll want to stay in here and soak it up. We were there early May (Sat) and it wasn't too busy.

This is just a room within the cathedral. Not that interesting. Worth about 30 seconds of your time.

A small side room in the Cathedral - we did not take an audio tour, so we were a bit confused - library? music books? The books were from the middle ages - in close to perfect condition. The frescos in here are particularly ornate...More

You have to enter in this place. They offer you when you buy your ticket to the Duomo. I added to the visit and I am very happy to include it, because it was unforgettable.

Really enjoyed these beautiful paintings but only takes two minutes to see them and a queue to get in even in winter - summer would certainly be longer. The rest of the church is just as stunning so not a necessity if queues are bad.
