Stunning architecture and paintings, Never seen so many cathedrals and churches so close together. The cathedrals are like museums, so much history.

A typical Italian cathedral - no more, no less - but certainly worth a visit just to see Bellini's tomb.

Another piazza, not much around but a few churches, that I'm not too keen on. Someone else may have a bit more interest.

Inside, I was delighted to find an absence of OTT gothic; instead, a restful space despite the bustle.

unusual combination of lava and other materials were used to build this Cathedral, and it is also on top of Roman Baths. Not especially beautiful but interesting. The piazza outside has an obelisk with a lava elephant atop.
