What an amazing little find, perched behind the convent and high on the riverbank. You really get a feel for how this house of worship has changed functions over the centuries. You can view any items that have been removed for restoration and chat with...More

This would have been an effortless 'excellent' rating, but a very large part of this astonishing chapel (the glorious wooden choir stalls) has been removed for restoration in the adjoining Church of St John. Never the less, this tiny 8th century religious site remains a...More

We payed quite a few Euros to enter this chapel, and it was a complete waste of time and money, as there was nothing to see, as everything was closed and under repair. I find it highly peculiar that they charge people a lot of...More

This is the most important and best preserved temple coming from the VII century, after the fall of the Roman Empire, when the barbarian Lombardi ruled in Italy. This temple is under UNESCO World Heritage status. All the restoration works have been completed and now,...More

As a family of 4, we were charged close to CAD$20 for tickets to what we were told was a must-see place. After we entered, we found the majority of the grounds were undergoing restoration and were off limits. The Tempietto is a wonderful and...More
