Despite thinking that the tour would be more about the Cathedral specifically - I found the museum fascinating. Actually everything in the museum is linked to the Cathedral, so it really was about the Cathedral! Even though the museum is extensive, our guide chose specific things to focus on, which made the visit easier to take in. This is a very worthwhile experience.

This was truly sensational views, our tour guide was great! I got lost trying to find the bus on the way back. I was so fortunate my bus driver was aware of this. Get your guide promptly alerted her and they waited for me to find the bus. I was truly comforted by this as I would have been lost otherwise. Thank you so much!
