Our group had a guide and this made the visit more interesting. Not sure how much you would learn if visiting on your own. I did not see audio guides being used by other tourists. Apparently members of the public enjoyed seeing bodies dissected. I...More

The operating theatre is ornate with wonderful carvings and woodwork. Tiered seats surround the marble table where the professor would work on a cadaver to illustrate points of anatomy. There would be perhaps thirty or so students at a time. There was a photo-display of...More

Rebuilt after the war, there is even a photo of the bomb that destroyed it on the door to the theatre. Its immaculate, interesting to see and the first time my italian wife has understood why in England we call it an operating theatre.

This is where students learnt anatomy in the 1700's and onwards, watching dissections on the table. The building is a spectacle in itself. The ticket (5Euro) gets you into a library room as well.

Amazing theatre located in the oldest University in the world. The whole theatre is beautifully decorated and made of carved wood. The Statues and skinless Sculptures with muscles exposed are stunning and even the statutes around the walls and on the ceiling are extraordinary. The...More
