Departure from the bus station in the Lower Town, or from Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe (at the top station of the Funicular). A visit to Basilica di S. Maria Maggiore: begun in 1137, during the course of the centuries it was enriched with different works of art, among which the choir stands out with amazing wood inlaying over drawings by Lorenzo Lotto and the Baroque confessional by Fantoni. A visit to Cappella Colleoni: characterized by a façade decorated with polychrome marble and bas-reliefs, shows different decorations referring to ancient Roman culture, and all the way to Hebrew and Christiana ones. A visit to the Cathedrals: preceded by a Romanesque cathedral, and before that a Paleochristian one, the actual one is dedicated to St. Alexander, and it safeguards works of Tiepolo and Moroni (among others). A visit to Palazzo della Ragione: initially used as a city hall, it then became the seat of the court of justice, a theater and a library. A visit to the Baptistry: raised in 1340, initially it was placed inside the Basilica di S. Maria Maggiore; now it is only open for baptisms. The explanation of the Old Square, with the Communal Tower and the Civic Library: The Square began to acquire its Renaissance shape and size with the beginning of the Venetian dominance; on the eastern side is the Angelo Mai Civic Library, with a rich patrimony of parchments, old incunable books and illuminated manuscripts.
