On our final morning in France we woke early, showered and dressed ahead of our 9am flight to Italy. Even though we were only taking the hourly shuttle between Paris and Rome, we knew a long drive followed the flight, so we decided to play it on the safe side and left early.

In 1118, the architect Rainaldo added the main entrance facade…which also leans out a foot.
