The curved facade of the medieval Palazzo Chigi Saracini is impossible to miss. The walls and ceiling of a small peristyle in the the courtyard are richly decorated. The Chigiana Music Academy occupies the building today.

This was part of a museum package of tickets we bought and we weren't expecting much. That said, we found an audio guide online and it helped enormously. There is so much history to even some of the smallest pieces, and it was just fascinating...More
