This has a wonderful collection of 13th and 14th century Sienese art and is a must see attraction if that is your thing. It is also blissfully empty of tourists so you can enjoy the Duchies and Martinis in peace. It really brings home the...More

Most underrated museum I've ever been to. Off the beaten track, but sheer volume of 13-15th century paintings ('bizantian' style) is remarkable. Even Uffizi doesn't have this size of collection.
