  • Absolutely gorgeous. The feminist photo installation is so captivating and the museum has exhibits in Italian and English. Staff are more than helpful (especially if you make an effort to speak Italian 😉)
  • For history lovers this is a excellent museum. Amazing Roman remains of two houses with mosaic floors and many artifacts. Also the Chapel and crypt are not to be missed. Very helpful and friendly staff. Allow 2 hours.
  • What a wonderful place! My hometown jewel. Amazing artistic complex that explores different eras of the city. The Nuns' Choir is spectacular but the very best is the cross chapel Santa Maria in Solario with it's starry ceiling. It takes at least 2 good hours to visit it all but every room it's worth the time. Children friendly. Lovely open space to sit and have a snack (vending machine available), small children play area and breastfeeding corner. Staff speaks english too.
  • Roman ruins were excellent. Took approx 1.5 hours. Very interesting
  • Great collection of artifacts, especially if you're interested in the Roman era. Well laid out.
