Apart from some Roman history, this really isn't very interesting and doesn't live up to the descriptions or pictures.

We went I only because it was raining like the end of days outside. This is just a (very nice) house full of paintings that are not very good, chests of drawers that are ugly and tacky trinkets and ornaments. Just because they are from the 16, 17 & 18 century seems to get them classed as a collection. Definitely... More

A nice way to loose oneself in another era and be surrounded by exquisite furniture, fine china and beautiful paintings by not so known artists. Then connect back to this world by taking a stroll in the charming gardens, which in these days are perfumed by many types of roses and finish your walk with a breathtaking view of the... More

There's lots to see at this lovely museum and its a lot bigger than it appears from the entrance. There's paintings by some of the famous masters, clocks, fans, ceramics and furniture. Don't miss the walk to the belvederes ( we were puzzled and followed the path through the garden into the short tunnel and found ourselves at a patio... More

Multistory old villa with lots of unrelated artifacts from Roman times to the 19th century. Nice setting though not kept up well, and absolutely, positively don't go on a Saturday in May. Got there at 9:30 and had the place to ourselves for 1/2 an hour. Then the hordes of Italian tour groups arrived. Clogged up the stairways, were loud... More

Very close to the main town square, Piazza Tasso. Lots of lovely inlaid wood furniture. Many paintings by Neapolitan artists of the last 5 centuries. Interesting ceramic displays on the top floor. Since the Counts of Terranova died and left their house and contents to the town in 1902 other donors have started donating smaller collections so there is a... More

A beautiful setting for our wedding. The museum is an impressive building in itself. The entrance through the arches, the main staircase and 'room of mirrors' (where our wedding ceremony was held) gives the museum an almost palatial feel. The gardens are lovely and a perfect setting for wedding photographs. The museum staff are very friendly and helpful and helped... More

My wife and I stumbled upon the museum while strolling about in Sorrento. We paid the small admission fee and took the tour. We were required to check our backpack at the front deck, and did so. The museum consists of four floors, bisected by the entrance hall. There is much to see on all floors: paintings, sculpture, ceramics, furnishings,... More
