This is built on top of ancient Roman ruins and has a glass floor so that you can see them! How cool and unique is that? We loved this church.

As we didn't visit other churches in town I cannot compare the Duomo with others, but although the interior was much smaller than I expected, it is certainly very ornate and the painted ceiling above the nave is rather spectacular.

This unimposing church carries many signs of the Etruscan predecessors and inside you can view the ancient foundations upon which this church was built through the glass floors. Despite extensive reconstruction underway indoors it was still a marvelous visit.
