We recently had five days in Faenza and visited this lovely museum. Hidden in the back streets behind an unobtrusive facade lies a palace richly decorated and a wonder to behold. There is not a lot of furniture but this enables you in many ways to just focus on the lavish design and architecture of each room. Many of the rooms are large with ornate curved ceilings and frescos. The materials are lavish and very colourful. The chandeliers magnificent. The ceilings beautifully painted recording historic themes. The visitor can hire, free of charge, a recorder that will give details of each room as you tour. It is not very extensive, but it will give you a good idea of the opulence that many Italians lived with in years gone by. Well worth a visit....…

The palace is wonderful, elegant. The building was remodelled several times, but what you see today it is beautiful. The decoration of the rooms are brilliant. A must see if you are in the city.

When visiting Faenza you won't expect a building with neoclassical interiors. We went there with my english speaking teenage niece and she could enjoy the visit thanks to audioguide in her language. If you have time, it's a place not to miss. Faenza is mostly famous for its ceramics production ( ceramics museum, too) but I highly suggest this visit as well. Don't forget to visit the "cottage" nearby. You should ask for the key at the cafè on the back. The garden where it's set, in the past, belonged to Palazzo Milzetti but now it's in a sort of private association cafè. Walk thru freely, they are very polite and ready to hand out the key. Few steps and you can unlock the door yourself and have a look of this unusual spot.…

We got the audio tour as part of the very inexpensive ticket. There are many more rooms besides the ones you can visit. Very interesting history and one of the first bathrooms in the area. We stopped on our way to Bologna and I am glad we did so.

this was a complete surprise. This is a very elegant palace right in town. Mostly remodeled about 1800 to 1810. There is a private bathtub off one of the early bedroom chambers. The furniture in the halls is impressive and the spit in the kitchen is ingenious.
