The detail and richness of the decoration are the striking things here. And the sheer scale of it. A peaceful yet magnificent place regardless of your faith.

All of the churches I've seen in Italy this trip, including some that are quite small, are worth a visit. This one is beautiful. However, the basilica is so spectacular, that it's easy to focus on "this is not as good" and overlook how beautiful...More

The catherdral looks different styles from different angles. It is opposite the Ducal palace and well worth a visit. It has a lot of lovely architecture, and a lovely feeling inside.
