Go in there, folks! The wall paintings will make you speechless! Photos are not allowed, but I think this is better for the paintings. The museum is some kind of cute, old building. Like the whole city a place where you can feel history!

One of those sights that you will just have to enjoy without taking any photos. Gorgeous interior, and take some time to really wander through. Worth a visit!

The fresco cycle in the cathedral is stunning and the audio guide is a very helpful explanation of them and other aspects of the building and its history.

Beautiful blue interior in the cathedral makes it special and unique in Italy. Loved it and worth the entry fee. They are militant about no photos inside. The area has a ncie farmers market.

The Collegiata is very much worth the visit -- at the center of town, there is a wonderful crowd on the steps every day. Inside, both the church and the museum should be visited. Superb frescos.

We saw this Duomo as our first Italian Duomo visit and it was a great site to see. The interior was beautiful and the artwork was amazing, combined with the great history as well.

Just as the floor panels of Siena's Duomo where memorable, similarly the frescoes of San Gimignamo' Duomo will be. I did not expect much from the unassuming exterior, but the Cathedral has a 'wow' factor upon entry with the brilliant frescoes adorning the walls and ceilings. I'd have loved to have taken an audio guide to learn the details contained... More
