When you have the time, I recommend that you go in to the Dormition Abbey (otherwise known as the Basilica of the Assumption - where Mary is thought to have been "assumed" up to heaven). Take a tour or bring a guidebook, as it is really interesting inside, especially the sarcophogus of Mary underneath a circular tile roof beautifully depicting 6 Jewish women. The history of the place is cool, too.

Love,
Mom
