On Sunday morning there were very few people in the Pinacoteca, which was a welcome change from the crowds at other sights. Highly recommended!
Loved this place. One of my favorite museums. I really like how they have the lights dimmed and then put little spot lights on the pieces. I think this really brings the works to life. Also to see Raphael's cartoon put together is worth the price of admission alone. The leonardo codices are very interesting as well.
Great museum and art gallery. Nice display of various classical artists paintings and other works of art. Excellent audioguides (only 3 euros). Air conditioning. Nice bookstore with selection of English titles. No cafeteria. Recommended.
