The lay out was superb, nicely spaced items, cases not overcrowded and the building was attractive but the contents were not at all impressive and definitely not worth the entrance fee. Some descriptions in English but very much briefer than the Italian text and not...More

Beautifully restored palazzo housing many, many religious paintings. Many on wood which were interesting. Also a little travel altar for Christians on the move. A couple of early models of Syracusa,one in ivory, were unusual. Lighting was very subdued and nice classical music playing. The...More

Some amazing art works in here! The best thing about it was on the day I went there was only me and one other person in the gallery. There wasn't many English speakers there so don't expect an audio guide. But it is well worth...More
