.....and so little time. This place can be experienced in 30 mins. The Atchiginnasio Palaces houses the operation theatre. Truly interesting, a must.

A highlight of the main sights of Bologna for anyone interested in academia, medicine, biology or history. The anatomical sculptures are particularly fascinating, as well as the carved wooden statues of all the important anatomists and biologists around the edge of the theatre. Tickets for this also get you into the Stabat Mater hall, which is equally spellbinding - check... More

I loved the history and the detail in the wood-panelled room. Lots of interesting sculpture especially the skinned men holding up the professor's canopy. Definitely worth the 3 Euro admission.

To see how this part of the world give us so much civilisation and knowledge - and so many hundreds of years ago - fascinating - 3 euros a bargain.

A special place in the oldest European university. There was a reverence about the room. Some medical photos on display and admission to the library/lecture hall.

This is one of the few surviving very early theatres built for anatomy lectures with a body laid out in the centre! It must be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, to survive. It was heavily damaged in the second world war but it has been faithfully and beautifully restored and it is a rare treat to see... More

It's amazing to see how the Italians learned so much about the body and human medicine. This room has been beautifully restored and its very interesting. The museum provides handouts in 5 or 6 different languages. Your tickets for this room are also good for the library. It's $3 to enter, but worth it.

Strange impression while visiting this teatro anatomico. The place is beautifully restored/rebuilded (after destruction during the war) and the table in white marble can easily make us imagine biology lessons that took place here a few centuries back

You can imagine yourself sitting in a lecture here. This room is beautiful and full of history and past knowledge. Take a seat and absorb everything there is to see in this room, including all the work on the ceiling.
