This museum had a number of interesting things to look at, such as the library with the reading monkey or the bronze of the angel fighting the dragon. To me, one icon is much like any other, and religious paintings do kind of merge into...More

The first part is located directly under the Duomo and it is interesting to see the ceilings. The first floor contains papal apartments, with spacious rooms, tall ceilings, now filled with large, beautiful religious works of art and other relics, statues, etc.

This was nice to see but hard to understand as everything is in Italian with no English translations. The whale bones were certainly an interesting thing to see. This area housed many of the tools and pieces of equipment used to maintain the Cathedral.
