If you are an art lover, then don't miss this lovely museum. For 3 euros each, it is a gem. The collection includes ancient frescoes and building fragments from medieval times, but the highlight is the room of Botticelli paintings including his Virgin and Child,...More

Very educational because the collection is meticulously arranged chronologically, annotated and complemented with political maps for each period.The earliest pièces are I think some sculptures and triptychs 12-13 th C finishing at the mid-16th C (I think). There's even a Botticelli. The building is worth...More

This was a nice spot to stroll through centuries of artwork all housed in a historic building. I enjoyed the variation in the artwork as well as the architecture of the building itself.
