  • Beautiful place. A must to visit. Even only patio is worth seeing.
  • Amazing to learn that this is practically wear modern medicine started, take the time for the university tour, they have a great guided tour (and you can only get in like this), definitely worth the time and it's only 5 euros.
  • Beautiful building to visit, it's not open often but you should check the times of the tour that takes you around the main rooms including teatro anatomico
  • Storico
  • A serious and challenging University, where to bring home a good result you have to sweat it out fixed. Old and decaying structures there are the framework. But basically you go to school to learn, not to the pacha or critics of mattresses, then 5 stars is the minimum. To all those who criticize I would highly recommend her to go a couple of years in military or working to keep studying, they will see that then appreciate what is on offer will be easier. Universitario is the new kept studenting
