  • If the SOAP dispenser in the men's bathroom is completely demolished in a restaurant for weeks, I wouldn't know how it looks in the kitchen...

  • From the starters through the main course to dessert, we got consistently high quality! Very delicious food. A good Café Coretto rounded off the menu. Nice operations provide a complete meal. Only the cleanliness of toilets is catching up to do...

  • A gem of a museum. Walking past you might think it is an art museum, but the house is something to see, renovated back to what it might have looked like. Then there's the archaeology, and lots of finds and exhibits from Roman times. Porcelain, silver, glass. And ridiculously cheap entry for such a vast and interesting collection from local history.
  • You don't imagine the many interesting objects you will see.... and you are well advised to take your time.... this museum is worthwhile
  • This is a must see museum! Their collection of modern and ancient art, was overwhelmingly beautiful. Make sure you take about about 2-3 hours to properly enjoy the masterpieces.
  • Beyond my expectation entrance fee is 1.80 euro .I really enjoy the museum beautiful painting and very interesting place for me to learn about this city .
  • Great sections about roman history
