interesting not only for the frescos but for the fact that there the cult of god Mitra was practiced. And in those times this cult was the last stand of the roman army to save the collapsing roman empire. I should now open a chapter...More

The 2nd floor and half the ground floor were closed. Still 7€ entrance fee. The paintings were nice, but the atmosphere was disappointing. Staff was bored to the bone, toilets very luxurious but without paper towels.. Potentially nice but for now disappointing.

this quiet elegant ex papal residence has some wonderful works. It is just worth going for the couple of Caravaggio. The ceilings are also amazing and a staircase or two to wonder over. Interesting that gems like this are not flooded with people
