Have visited here before. This is a really good place to go and certainly not dull or boring. There are some lovely views from the terraced archways but, unfortunately, as the trees have continued to grow, this impairs the views somewhat but it's still worth a visit. There are extensive gardens but they are not really looked after, which is... More

We visited Sorrento on our first day and decided to go for a wander towards the coast so we could find a good view. On our way we came across this building. Curious we decided to have a look. After paying our admission we were vaguely told to go right first and then go left across the hall. We still... More

Walk down the garden to the Belvedere and admire one of the best public views in town. A lift takes you half way up the 4 floors. A good selection of ceramics and some interesting mini collections of unusual items.

The collection was dreary, dusty and neglected and there was very little in it that sparked our interest. The building itself was pleasant and the garden very attractive. The entrance fee of 8 euros was steep, when you consider that you can get into the enormous Naples Archaeological museum for this. I wouldn't recommend it though it did us a... More

It's not a huge museum, but the examples of marquetry (inlaid furniture & ornaments) were quite fascinating. I found only one really good painting, though there are lots of interesting portraits. I really enjoyed my visit, but it doesn't really compare to the great museums of the world.

Lots of displays, nice gardens to wander around. Only 8 euro and takes an hour plus to see everything. Worth seeing to get a feel for the history of Sorrento.

Visited with 3 of our children whilst on holiday in Sorrento. This is a small museum in a lovely old house with lots to look at but no great works of art. Good views from the terraces across Sorrento.
