  • next to the Palace of the Popes Papal Palace is home to a very important collection of paintings of the Italian renaissance. See if you like religious art.

  • This was a nice spot to stroll through centuries of artwork all housed in a historic building. I enjoyed the variation in the artwork as well as the architecture of the building itself.

  • Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
  • I was fortunate to visit this place......an amazing architecture....
  • Date: 22/08/2016 site visit: Musée du Petit Palais Este Museum is found in one corner of the Esplanade where is located the Palace of the popes, exactly next to the mountain of Rocher des Doms. It houses mostly Italian and Provencal 13th century and paintings 16th. There are also Gothic and Romanesque sculptures. The entrance with the PASS card (free) is 3 euros.

  • Interesting Museum for lovers of Italian art and religious art. I found the Museum too repetitive and dated in its pedagogical approach.

  • I really liked the petit palais Museum, but it's pretty little immersive and interactive!
