The mixture of architecture and art won me over. Loving amazing architecture it was no surprise that I fell in love with the galleria d’Italia wooden corridor. So beautiful you don’t want to leave. Also very impressive the sculptures by Henry Moore.

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
