... full of tourist lines waiting to get into them. With this card I pretty much can walk right in when I want. My first visit was to the famous Dummo or dome church. In here lies buried saints and a massive dome on the top of the church building. I climbed 672 steps up to the dome for some breathtaking photos of the city.
