You can visit the chapel on a stand alone basis but it's cheaper to go to the Museum first and get a token for admission to the church. The church was built using bits and pieces, various columns and capitals put together. There's a women's gallery only accessible from the museum. In the museum the rooms are very fine. One... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Diocesan Museum and the quaint Romanesque church of Sant'Eufemia, the two buildings are located in the complex of the Archbishop's Palace next to the Duomo in Spoleto.

The staff were friendly and didn't mind us trying out our Italian. Unfortunately the little dhurch is closed for renovation at the moment. The museum has some beautiful frescoes and paintings. Being a religious museum there are lots of artefacts from churches and monasteries. The wooden sculptures of the crucifix are quite remarkable.

This forms part of the Cathedral Museum and is reached through the Archbishop's Palace. You arrive in the gallery - an unusual feature for a Catholic church - and make your way down an old stone staircase to the nave. The less fit can still get a good view from above.

Don't miss the "Museo Diocesano di Spoleto e Basilica di S. Eufemia" which displays religious art dating from the Middle Ages to the Baroque period, including a bronze bust by Bernini and several notable Madonnas. The church itself is rather naked but the museum itself offers much to the art lover.
