We visited Bologna specifically to see the Palazzo Fava exhibition. It was publicised as being primarily a Vermeer exhibition which it wasn't as it had only two Vermeers with all the rest of the exhibits being by other Dutch masters. There were a number of fine Rembrandt portraits and a Hals as well as landscapes, pictures with biblical themes and peasant lives by other artists. Of course, the highlight was to see the luminous "Girl with a Pearl Earring" in real life although it was a little disappointing that even though there are only 35 of his known works, there were so few Vermeers at what was advertised as being primarily a Vermeer exhibition.
To avoid long queues it is a good idea to pre-book.
