“A most see - but very crowdy”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

First of all: Be prepared for many tour groups. Plan your visit if there is something in particular you are interested in viewing. With millions of art items from all the streams the 'hermitage" one can never be able to see it all therefor plan your visit by checking the website.

“Mantegna jigsaw”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

This church was bombed in WW2 and the Mantegna frescoes have been pieced back together like a jigsaw. Extraordinary conservation work.

“Simple, yet nice”
Reviewed July 26, 2010

You'll probably pass by this on your way to the Cappella degli Scrovegni, so do yourself a favor and take 5-10 minutes and check it out. It has a solemn feel to it, but has some nice features. This is nothing like Basilica di Sant'Antonio da Padova, but has it's own charms.

“Pretty Sad”
Reviewed August 7, 2004

Visited Chiesda degli Eremitani and found it to be still carrying a lot of historic memorabilia. It saddens the heart to see this chapel as a casualty of World War II. But I believe that anything of beauty can always withstand the test of time and that is this chapel reminds me of. Poignantly simple but still pretty.
