  • We were stunned by this place. I have never spent 3 hours in a museum before but you couldn't drag us away! The religious art of the high Middle Ages and the Renaissance blew us away, worth the entrance price ten times over. The statues and paintings (including works by great names such as Botticelli) were stunning. It's a must see.
  • Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
  • Nice paintings
  • Bit repetitive
  • I was fortunate to visit this place......an amazing architecture....
