  • Arriving in Bologna is a milestone, not only for tortellini! Unfortunately it's in the most notorious of the city centre.

  • A succession of very well lit rooms. A very comprehensive collection of artists from Bologna. Some wonders including a Raphael. A museum much more complete than that of Parma. Entry price, six euros.

  • Was a visit. No hurry because I wanted to savor looking at everything in detail. Moral of the story within at 9.30 and go out at 14! But I can guarantee happy! Good sized rooms. Lighting in my opinion. Wanting to see several paintings with the lights are unwatchable. But are details for those who want to enter the picture without stopping to observe it from a distance. Giotto, Raphael, Guercino, Reni, Carracci. Time and money well spent!

  • Beautiful building with dated exhibits. Needs environmental upgrading.
  • A must visit for Italian Renaissance art fans.
  • Had to brush up on bible and allegory but great paintings and excellent gallery setting gives scale and impact the art deserves. Check out the lecture theatre
  • Outstanding collection that is well organized and well documented and not to be missed while visiting Bologna.
  • Simply breathtaking array of italian masters. The Guido Reni salon is awesome.
