I visited the Galleria Nazionale recently, specifically to see Piero della Francesca's Polyptych of St. Anthony- a lovely Madonna and Child topped by an Annunciation considered to be among the finest Renaissance perspective renderings. Along the way I saw the many pictures by Perugino, another highlight of this fine collection, and other top-flight artists who produced works in Perugia and... More

I'm not really an art connoisseur but I very much enjoyed browsing through this museum. Some items were of interest mainly for their age, but many showed fascinating variations of style. Definitely worth the time and cost

Fine art beautifully displayed in a splendid building. On a holiday where perforce most of what we looked at was religious, we particularly enjoyed, as a change, the lovely, glowing modern glass of Giuliano Giuman. Much of it was displayed grouped & hanging in the centre of the room as if from a washing line - very effective.

Unknown to most, Perugia being not as famous as Florence or Verona, this is a wonderful museum with beautiful afrescos, paintings from Perugino, Beato Angelico and other masters

Very old art not pictures that we expected but many crosses and art taken from churches. Middle Ages and all very similar but still very fascinating.

Whoever designed this museum in the recent past must have had a robust budget. From the hand-done plastered walls to the stunning mounts for the paintings, which float down from the ceiling, the expertise in display techniques is evident. What this does is bring all these Madonnas, crucifixions, Annunciations, etc. come to life in a way that you seldom seen... More

Many, many wonderful pieces to be enjoyed. The Piero della Francesca, Polyptych of St. Anthony, is fantastic.

If you're following the Piero della Francesca Trail (as my wife and I did in February), a visit to the National Gallery of Umbria is a must stop for a viewing of the "Polyptych of Saint Anthony," with its perfect example of the use of perspective gracing the cusp showing an extraordinary depiction of the Annucuation. But there's much more... More
