The museo Storico are actually a couple of museums combined. With the combination ticket you can visit the tower, Rocca (1800's), Donizetti (opera) and Podesta (next to the tower).. We reallly enjoyed the tower and Pallazo del Podesta. Although everything was in Italian there were some of the most innovative museum experiences I have seen. For example there was a... More

Unfortunately the narration is only in italian so the non-italian speakers can't in fact understand and enjoy this project. My children who don't speak italian were expecting a lot (having... More

Spent the evening from 8:00 to almost midnight at a black tie gala dinner at this beautiful museum. Appetizers and drinks on the balcony overlooking the valleys and the city, then multi-course dinner in a stunning event room. Service and food equally as incredible as the location. Director Visentin is an expert in his field and most gracious host.
