We enjoyed the interesting collection of paintings, wooden sculptures, bishops vestments and popes rings. Labels were only in Italian with English documents printed on separate sheets.

Probably one of the best cathedral/museums I have visited. Doable in an hour or so but don't miss small cubby holes in the walls. If access is not blocked off, go in. I will devulge the surprise.

This is a great little museum with lots of hidden gems. Several floors and lots of rooms give the impression of a grand family house. The display of ecclesiastical garments on the top floor is particularly stunning. They also have nice toilets!
