Five dollars for adults, free for children. This museum is pretty amazing, it shows a lot of eastern Art, it’s all owned by the family who lives at the very top.

So nice!! Absolutely worth to see. You can see and even feel how did one wealthy family live century and half ago. Each room is so good preserved. Original furniture, paintings, books are there and it looks as is was 150 years ago. Take your time when you are there and look the each room and after that the taste local wine, cheese and sausage in marvellous cellar which is included in the price. Excellent!!!

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.
