This is a gem of a building with absolutely wonderful wall paintings and works of art everywhere. There is everything from the "grotesques" to an exquisite 15th century Madonna. Friendly atmosphere, much more interesting - to my mind- than all the grand palazzi.

The Casa Romei is an easy walk from the centre and very worthwhile - a lovely atmosphere, plenty of interesting things to view - and they even had musicians rehearsing for a concert while we were there. Nothing spectacular,but very enjoyable.
