We visited on a Sunday, not the best idea possibly as there was a full service in progress and we couldn't go in.

We did sit in the piazza outside the cathedral for a while and listen to the music coming from inside and try to work out how the sundial on the wall actually worked.

I agree with the previous review, Asti is not the best place to visit, we were hugely disappointed with it. Alba is much better !

This Roman style church is maybe not very showy or spectacular comparing to other Italian places of historical sites, although it has its unique beauty. It is situated in the Old Town, but is hidden on a calm street among other old buildings. This peace and quiet atmosphere enhances to contemplate the perfection of medieval architects and builders who did their jobs equipped only with plain tools. In my opinion the cathedral presents best in late afternoon sun, when the warm light brightens the red bricks.

By Italian standards this is a provincial and uninteresting cathedral as is Asti as a whole. Not worth going out of your way.
