Basilica di San Lorenzo Maggiore

Basilica di San Lorenzo Maggiore
The austere appearance of this 13th-century church is a perfect antidote to an overload of dripping gilt and inlaid marble. The wide nave is flanked by elegant Gothic arches and some fine tombs, and the apse displays a beautiful cross-vaulted ceiling. Under the church is an extraordinary archaeological site revealing the remains of the ancient city; excavation is still underway to uncover streets dating from the 4th century B.C.E.
