    Description :

    “The main attraction is the exuberant part-Romanesque Duomo, and it’s bell tower – said to be the tallest medieval tower in Italy – known as the Torrazzo; the two are linked by a Renaissance loggia. The wonderful façade is dominated by the large 13th-century rose window and by a number of intricate touches, including a small portico with statues of the Virgin and saints. Inside, the Duomo is sumptuously decorated with magnificent early 16th-century frescoes and Flemish tapestries, as well as paintings in the side chapels. The top of the Torrazzo offers sweeping views.”
