You would think that centuries ago there were already anatomy lessons for students. The whole hall is very nicely renovated.

Great disappointment : you will be charged 3 Euros for spending less than 5 minutes in this wooden theater. Nothing special at all. Besides, the official historical library on the same floor is only open to students! Foreigners are not allowed to visit it! Imagine the discrimination. Is this the way the city council wants to encourage foreigners to visit... More

Beautiful site - outstanding woodwork. A step back in medical history to the 1500's. Short visit but well worth it.

A trip to Italy is going to be rather heavy on the churches and the religious art. But this small museum offers one a chance to see some of the scientific fruition of the renaissance. My daughter (a premed major) and I spent a good half our in the anatomy theater thinking about how amazing it must have been to... More

The atmosphere of the Teatro Anatomico in itself and the fact that only few tourists were visiting readily let your imagination wander back to the beginning of modern anatomy as one of the eagerly watching students.

Interesting to see but only two rooms available to see. If you are around the corner anyway, then go - otherwise don't.

Had a great wander around and was amazed to see the original autopsy table dating back to the 1700's. It's easy to imagine the medical students sitting in the theatre listening and watching their tutors. A pretty good place to visit and consider the history.

Teatro Anatomico is a room where they used to dissect human corpses for educational purposes. It's built like an amphitheater and made from wood with statues on its walls, It's beautiful to see.

The anotomical theatre, although sounding a bit gruesome is well worth a visit, just to witness the amazing restoration job that has been completed.

Don't miss this quick and unique attraction. We didn't make it here until the very end of our trip, but we're so glad we saw it. It is awe-inspiring to stand in the room where so much of our modern medical knowledge originated.
