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

Artfanatics real must-see place. Other minor disappointment. When I visited there, there was on exhibiotion of two Canaletto paintings. They were well worth seeing, and perhaps this was a once in a lifetime event to see them. The building is beautiful inside.

Turned out to be closed on Mondays. Never mind. I could never have seen as much as I wanted to in the time available, and it'll be a good excuse to come back to Perugia - :)

a thorough visit would take much more time than that available to the average tourist. Yet, room after room you get the chance to see and enjoy ssome of the most eloquent evidences of Umbria's glorious artistic past.

Visually stunning building with an impressive collection. Even if the art is not to your liking, it's worth a trip to enjoy the structure.
