It is practically two churches. On the left is the chapel dedicated to the miracle of Bolsena, a baroque building. On the right and adjacent is the old renaissance basilica

You definitely want to pay the small euro fee to have access to the catacombs and necropolis. Great museum. Guides very helpful.

Don't miss the crypt and catacombs. You are able to walk along the corridors and tunnels of the catacombs

A very beautiful church that comes with a very interesting history. The catacombs are a must, make sure you leave time tor them. If you are lucky enough to be there for the festival you'll experience something special.

It may not be the most striking basilica you'll ever find but it's at the core of a wonderful town in North Lazio. It is grander than the size of town might suggest but it has a marvellous local feel to it.
