  • National Art Museum, it is not a big Museum, Raphael, Caravaggio, great works are exhibited. Day I went was, whatever you want to see in the rattle hotel. Decoration of the hotel excellent staff, gorgeous. Museum of attentiveness in 1 hour 10 minutes. By the way, was very nice (laughs)

  • The Museum is located in a magnificent Palace of 1623, whose single-visit now would be worth. The ceilings of the different rooms are decorated with stunning baroque frescoes. Features more than 1,000 works (although not all are exposed), of artists from the 13th to the 18th centuries, such as Titian, El Greco, Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Ribera and Rafael (the famous portrait of "La Fornarina"). It is a must-see

  • Second floor was closed but it's still listed on the signs. When I visited, part of the ground floor was closed as well. If I knew the second floor was closed, I wouldn't have bothered. Nice collection for what I saw but a bit much to pay for that little bit.
  • Beautiful renaissance Palazzo by Carlo Maderno, Borromini and Bernini.
  • Run down, especially the gardens, this is August and it seems they haven't trimmed the bushes once this year, the greenhouse is abandoned, 3rd floor of the museum is closed, lots of historical statues falling apart... And the mansion is empty of all its original furniture
  • Beautiful artworks.
  • Just ART.
