Full description
Starting from the Piazza San Francesco d'Assisi, your guide leads you to the first monument of your tour, the Church of San Giovanni Fuorcivitas. This church began its construction in the 1st century A.D., and is admired for its use of a dichromatic decoration, displayed in both white and green marble.

Continuing to your next destination, discover the Piazza del Duomo, which encompasses some of the most important buildings in the city. Your tour then advances to the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Corte and the Cathedral of San Zeno. This cathedral contains the Treasure of San Jacopo, along with its famous Silver Altar.

The Piazza del Duomo is next on your agenga, where you can discover its important buildings: Palazzo Vescovile, Palazzo Pretorio, and the Palazzo Comunale. Currently the home of a civic museum, the Piazza del Duomo was built between the 13th and 14th centuries and was known to be the historical seat of the city’s political power. Due to the building’s powerful and massive walls, it displays the charm of that era along with it being an example of the ancient medieval construction techniques.

At the conclusion of the tour, your final stop is to the famous Pieve di Sant 'Andrea, another important place of worship. It is a clear example of the Italian-Romanesque style, which dates back to the 12th century A.D.
