  • Beautiful salaborsa. There are many spaces and three floors where the last several interesting things about the city. Too bad that there are people kinda rude and dirty.

  • A library in the city center, in a magnificent palace. Rooms for children, a cup of coffee, all in a former Palace from the ceiling sublime. A nice place to work or relax.

  • Go for it! Access is free and the room is quite impressive. In addition you can visit the Roman ruins on the floor -1 out these free of charge. I recommend having a jump here even on winter days to rest a bit warm – maybe flipping through a book, in the many "mini-lounges" provided by the library for reading.

  • Enlightened library and fun to explore. A central city library that serves both locals and visitors to the city very well. Within the library complex are function spaces for meetings and events. The piano can be played from 7:15 pm to 8:00 pm during the week when the library is open. NB the public toilet will cost you 50c downstairs.
  • The library is fine if you wanna take a coffee or a snack, but not if you have some work to do. It's quite crowded since it's in a very touristic place and it isn't so easy to focus on what you're doing.
  • Bellissima, da vedere e vivere
  • Great place to work, with free wifi!
  • Come dovrebbe essere una biblioteca!
