The Pinacoteca has been renovated and reorganized more than once since I first visited in 1959. Now it is on the level of the best museums in Europe and also offers a lovely bookshop on the ground floor. After walking up and down the steep streets of Perugia,some of them are wide stone stairways,a stroll through the beautiful paintings and... More

We travel the world visiting museums. This relatively small but remarkably memorable museum is one of our favorites. The early rooms featuring the Master f San Francisco, the life enhancing Piero, the luminous Fra Angelica, the remarkable Duccio and th extensive works by Perugina and other Umbrians is most worth while.

Piero della Francesca, Perugino, Fra Angelico and Pinturicchio are only some of the great artists represented in this superbly laid out gallery in the medieval Palazzo dei Priori. Don't miss it.

If you are interested in religoisu art from 13-14th cenury , then in Umbrian painting including Perugino, Galleria is the right place. A full tour requests about 2 hours. Very interesting: Perugino'srooms and the last one dedicated to Perugia views in 19th centur's painting. Few English explanations.

There are 40 rooms on two levels of art. It's very manageable though, and was very quiet when I was there so I was able to enjoy the various paintings and other works of art, which trace the history of the area from 13 century....it's mostly religious art and you have to go to Palazzo della Penna, which you can...

Very interesting and enjoyable museum. Don't overwhelm yourself. There's much to see. When you start glazing over, head out to the town. There's lots more to experience.

The multitude of paintings of the Madonna and child show the evolution of religious art. My kids perhaps weren't as engaged as I was on that aspect but was still a very interesting excursion.

A good collection, very well presented and explanations in English as well as Italian, but unless you are Catholic or particularly interested in religious art you will probably be rolling your eyes after 40 rooms of Madonnas, Saints and crucifictions. I certainly was! Not to my taste.
