We had walked passed this church a few times the outside being inscribed with music notes, however the doors were always closed, we walked passed once and the doors were open and some sort of service was just finishing and hundreds of people were leaving so we respectfully waited to one side to let them out. Then I was met... More

Very impressive underground ruins with a Roman market place, bakery & well which go on for about a quarter of a mile. Very cool especially nice if it's 38 C outside

Wow, yet again another smashing church in Italy, this one has so many nooks and crannies to check out it will take some time. Really worth a visit and not one to miss out on. no fee to get in but 5 Euros to enter the extra bit at the end of the visit. Just take it in and be... More

The ruins beneath the church are a must see. Preserved like your walking down an old Street are remnants of a Roman market which are very fascinating. There is even a 2000-year-old domed brick oven that has been recently used by one of the local pizzerias to reproduce pizza. It still works! But worth the few dollars to get in.... More

We entered through the side entrance up the stairs after noticing the church from the square that we were at. Indoors, the beautiful columns, ceiling, chandeliers and spectacular decorative stained glass took our breath away. It's definitely a magnificently decorated church and worth a visit if you are in the area.

The ceiling and arches of this church were spectacular. Very beautiful columns also. Not as many people visiting this church. Very nice.

We almost passed by this on our way back in the late afternoon to our B&B. We went in thinking it was to be a small church only to discover we'd entered by a side door and inside was a large church. They were preparing for Mass but we had the opportunity to look around for a little while. We... More

After climbing a long flight of steps from the piazza I spoke with 2 men at the front door of this church. In Italian they explained this was not the church I was seeking but I could go through and out the narthex door, avoiding the long staircase, but by the way, the other church was closed because it was...
