The Scrovegni Chapel is simply amazing. It is so exciting to see in the frescoes the genesis of Renaisance art. The Giotto figures and scenes start to come to life and show even to my undiscerning eyes an exciting new type of art. The presentation...More

Worth the wait and an advance booking. Make sure you are at the chapel before the allotted time as they limit the numbers inside the chapel. Your time inside is limited, but there's adequate time to take in the details and the scale of the...More
