>> I found the volunteers who run the museum to be unfailingly nice, from the women who sold me my ticket, to the woman who led me through the front building into the chapel to see (and film) the copy of the Shroud, to the man running the explanatory video. I not only chatted with them about their favorite Italian soccer team, I also got a tip on where to go for dessert after visiting the museum. Chat with the locals – it pays off!
