A must-see museum for anyone who like me wants to get off the beaten path. I was met by a security guard who introduced me to the museum in Italian. Praz was an ecclectic and avid collector who preferred to spend his time with his...More

We discovered this free museum at the back of the Napoleons museum completely by chance, as it doesn't appear to be advertised anywhere. Fantastic! You sign up for a guided tour of the appartment of this art historian, which has been preserved as he left...More
