You woud need to be interested in the Miedici dynasty to get caught up with the portraits, many of them copies of earlier oil-paintings. But some of the paintings collected by Pisans include some outstanding hangings, like the Rosso Fiorentino Rebecca at the Well or...More

I am sure that the people running this think - oh no-one comes so we will only open for half a day. Unfortunately this is a vicious circle, because they have chosen to only open in the mornings, when everyone is at the Leaning Tower...More

This is not a very large palace as only a portion is open to the public. But it still contains an interesting collection of arts and statues. Worthwhile visiting.

Opening time to the Palazzo was 9-14.00 and I think there was at least one weekday where it was closed? We visited on Wednesday and paid the 5 euros which were well worth it. Situated on the north side of the river Arno, easily reached...More

This is an old-style museum with lots to look at - preferable to over-curation. The collection spans various royal courts from the 16th to the early 20th century, (miniatures, portraits, sculpture, furniture,'glass and porcelain) with several collections of 20th century art and sculptureo on loan....More

We were the only visitors at the time. Maybe it's because it closes at 2pm. Once the doors were unlocked for us, we were free to wander as we liked. There's paintings, tapestry, furniture, statues, ceramics. Not much in the way of explanations in English,...More

I wouldn't put this museum at the top of my list of things to do in Pisa, but if you're in town for more than a day it's not a bad way to while away an hour or so. Lots of paintings so poorly lit...More
