I saw both the elliott erwitt and Henry Bresson photography exhibitions that were on in may and loved them. Absolutely worth the 15 euro entry fee if you love photography.

Well it's not a surprise. As most of the palace in Italy it's a piece of art. You could think it's one more with paintings and beautiful architecture.. but.. well it's Italy.. if you're bored with beautiful places why are you here.

however the main rooms are used for congress, meetings etc, so in a nutshell you cannot visit anything. stick to the facade and the courtyards
