Cover your head and your shoulders as you will feel the chill of this dark, large church. Smell the ancient stones' rememberance of past services. I was inside one hot August afternoon - alone.

San Romolo di Fiesole (the Cathedral of Saint Romulus) is a quiet cathedral in Fiesole. The church itself is very spartan with limited adornment, but is a view into how the majority of Italians practiced their religion over 1000 years.
