Found the exhibits very interesting, and took the free wine tasting afterwards. Some of the rooms are beautifully decorated.

This palazzo is very much worth a stop to see a lovely home with wonderful collections of porcelain, paintings and furniture.

Certainly an interesting house built to impress. Held by one family for half a century it then was bought in 1850 by Giuseppe Viti who made his money exporting local alabaster all over the world. So the house is full of trophies from his travels and a lot of family portraits and photographs. Twelve rooms are open and there is a description of each in different languages.

This is a very nice house with very nice items inside for a fair price to enter. All the ceiling were painted with frescos.

This was a beautiful experience. It is a window in time to see the way a wealthy family would have lived. It is immaculate, beautifully and lovingly preserved. The family photos add a personal touch to the experience. It reminded me of my childhood friend's family, who while not wealthy, had a lot of ornate china and crystal in their home. I'm quite sure Senor Viti ducked behind a rope and went into a room that was off limits to visitors. This is really a gem; thoroughly enjoyed it.
