Tickets are on sale in the... More

The area is unlock, but opened by your guide who escorts you down to the baths which are located under the cathedral and is part of the Diocesan Museum where your tour starts. On this occasion we had a very knowledgable English speaking guide who was a short term volunteer. It is well worth the visit. To some the view... More
