Also in the The Museo Diocesano is this tempura on wood 1200s story of San Nicola il Pellegrino, done with 16 surrounding Sienese style predellas miniatures with events from his life.  The scene on the right shows Pope Urban II handing Nicola's canonization bill to Archbishop Bisanzio just before the First Crusade climaxed in Jerusalem in 1099 and the building of the Cattedrale di San Nichola il Pellegrino began.  The world was to wait another thousand years until a comparably iconic waterside structure - the Sydney Opera House - appeared.

 

 

 

The narrow flag-stone streets in the old town contribute to the enjoyment of hanging out there - but choose November rather than July!

November has the most beautiful light quality for photography, but can be very cold winded as this feather plumped pigeon and parka'd people would attest.  The downside of November.
