Due to Covid 19 the Pinacoteca N di Bologna was only partially open. We support the arts so had a little wander and we enjoyed it so next time we will definitely have a good look around. The good news: hardly anyone in the galleries. The collection is definitely worth viewing - lots of excellent early paintings.

This wonderful gallery of 13-18th century Italian art was one of the absolute highlights of our visit to Bologna. A whole room is dedicated to Giotto, which we enjoyed mostly by ourselves, as was the case with the Raphael paintings. There is also a stunning room dedicated to the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci's contemporary Guido Reni, where one can see paintings spanning his career, the only painting not by Reni being a portrait of him. Closed on Mondays, for most of the year this Pinacoteca, in the university district, is open throughout the day, unlike most of the city's churches. There is no café, so if - as we did - you want to stay several hours it is best to visit a nearby café beforehand. Well worth the entry charge, credit cards are not accepted, so be prepared for that. There are lockers in the basement (1 euro returnable). In writing this review I am already wishing I could return in the next few months to this haven of wonderful paintings, well captioned in Italian and English (for some exhibits) with virtually no other tourists.

Each large city in Italy has a Pinacoteca. It is the place where religious art is preserved after churches, convents or monesteri are closed down. The richness and variety of the art work is amazing.

Rather nice Museum. While there are many not very interesting paintings in the first 15 rooms, to me the Reni room and a painting by Raffaelo were great.
