    The ticket is 9€, the best 9€ I've ever spent! The visit begins with the Diocesan museum, that has really good collections. I was really amazed at the inlaid reliquary of Saint T. Becket and the embroidered vestments. Some of then were created in the XIII century, but they look so modern!!
    The visit continues in the transetto of the cathedral and downstairs in the mitreo. The columns, the ciborio, the cosmatesco, the painted wall of the mitreo are wonderful, but the masterpiece is the Crypt.
    Except for one vault in 20, it is completely and beautifully frescoed.
    In the 80's the frescos were restored: deterioration, dust and efflorescences made room for vivid stories from the Bible and the life of Saint Magno: it's all so real, so alive, so intense!!
    Please notice that absolute silence is requested, and the lights are on just for fixed periods: it's absolutely necessary to preserve this wonder!

    The presence in the past of several popes guarantees great pallazo's and seigniorial homes. Several squares, many beautiful alleyways full of flowers, a great museum and cathedral.

    This ancient palace is steeped in fascinating papal history. We found the audio guide to be a pretty good introduction to the stories and the stones exuded a dramatic sense of intrigue.
    It’s not very large, but you will need at least an hour. I recommend reading about the infamous ‘slap’ before you visit in order to really appreciate the significance of the site.

    We were not able to visit the crypt during our visit, but it was well worth exploring the cathedral. Our visit coincided with the lead up to a christening and it was delightful to observe a Special, traditional, extended Italian family gathering in such an historic church.
    Check timings, so you can visit the crypt (unlike we did!)
    I’ll have to come back...

    Anagni is an enchanting city with beautiful stone streets enhanced by medieval architecture and a beautiful cathedral.
    But, the highlight of my tour of this beautiful city was my visit to La Mostra di Tommaso Gismondi. The beauty and intricacies of this artist's exhibit is awe inspiring.

    We visited the workshop/sales center for Tarsie Turri and learned about how Rita makes the most beautiful wood items just as her father did before he recently passed. Picture frames, vases, wall decorations, mirrors, jewelry. More. All so beautiful. So unique. I left with an awesome necklace that will be a constant reminder of the time we spent visiting here in Anagni. Thank you Rita for welcoming us and sharing the story of your family business.

    Anagni is a gem for its medieval history, walls, churches, and palazzi, but this monument has a few bits of its other history. First this memorial commemorates the fallen in WW II. Next, the monument (made in 1927) is a remainder of fascist style and attitude towards commemorating a past full of martial glory. Finally, there is an official note on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the US bombing of the city of Anagni in 1944, noting that this monument commemorates the real victims. I'm not sure what that means--does it mean that the fallen soldiers of 1914-1918 are the real victims or the civilian deaths in 1944?
