This time I did the whole visit though - the magnificent duomo, a massive museum with countless treasures, Pope Pius II's incredible manuscript collection in the piccolomino libreria, crypt with its 180 square metres of frescoes, and baptistery of St John with Donatello sculpture.

... pressing into flesh as the male figure grasps his captive. We enter the museum and follow the prescribed route. It is already busy, but not quite so insane as the Louvre, and we can get to see what we want to see without too much use of sharp elbows. We make the wise decision to skip all of the Dutch masters and other foreigners and focus on the local boys.
