  • This is an absolute MUST for any lover of the Renaissance, especially Titian. We took a private tour with Context Travel and it was worth every cent

  • I just don’t get it why people need to pay in the house of God. I understand they need to maintain the ancient church,but they can just ask for a voluntary donations and implement some restrictions...

  • Wow! What a find this was. The devil is in the detail here. Take a closer look. There are some amazing paintings Some amassing carving and some amazing wood work. It’s well worth spending the money to pope in and see this as the craftsmanship inside is simply amazing. It may not have all the guided ceilings of other places but there is an elegance and beauty to the way this details work is on display.
  • It Very nice place and full of interested history. The entrance fee is 3 Euro and for visiting internal and go to the too have to pay another 7 euro. But it's very good experience. Recommend to go on the morning or last afternoon.
