If you have difficulties with stairs, this is challenging destination to visit. This museums is on several floors and even with a possible elevator (which I personally didn't see but I believe there is one) it can be hard to access, specially for wheelchair users....More

The Museum, Baptistry, Crypt and the walk up to the top is a combined ticket you can purchase from the Tourist Center. For visitors, especially history buffs this is a tour worth taking. Climbing up the steps to take in the view is your reward.

Not impressed with this place at all, just full of religious items that all look the same, not sure why they name it Opera as there is nothing in there about opera.

This museum has some beautiful sculptures and paintings. The roof terrace gives great views of the city. What makes this museum a little unique is a great collection of ornate reliquaries - many with very visible skulls and bones. Also a very pretty gold tree...More
