I saw this place covered in some documentary and it appealed. It's a bit of a chore to find - while on a main street, it's tucked away behind an inconspicuous facade. The facade and seemingly ordinary ticket hall will not prepare you for the...More

Strange museum with lots and lots and lots of pictures of Jesus. If you're into that, fair play, but don't go out of your way to visit. Let us in for free though which was ok.

This unassuming museum is well worth a visit. I loved the Benedictine cloisters. The religious Art work rivalled or was better than Florence's.

Lovely sculptures in wood and paintings for all to appreciate. I was impressed even though I'm no expert.

The start was off-putting. There was a courtyard lined with capitals and other unlabelled bits of carved marble. A large room (former church?) of labelled sculptures followed. We kept going ....up stairs. Wow! Numerous 12th century guilded crucifixes, then altar pieces. Best of all were...More

if you go to Pisa you must visit it. 10-15 minutes away from the train station. Walking by the river [ until you reach it ] is also magical...
