  • A gem of a palazzo in a very interesting street lined with marvellous architecture. The outside is stunning, and the art inside worth a visit. Staff friendly and helpful.

  • The exterior of the building is unique in its geometric shapes and with the sunlight hitting it at different times and angles makes for interesting photos.
  • Very nice building with a large collection of paintings dating all the way back to the 1300s. Not 5 stars because one of the areas was closed unfortunately
