This museum has got an excellent picture collection from the great Italian masters. The museum is very well organised, and if you are in the city please don't miss it.

Beautifully presented, in a classic building. Not crowded on a Saturday afternoon. Also includes a ticket to the modern art museum (Gamec) across the street. Don’t miss it.
