Being over 60 this museum is free of charge, or else a few EUR. If you expect a Florence type super museum you are not satisfied here. But we enjoyed a rather extensive collection of paintings from the 12th to the 19th century very much...More

Not the Uffizi, but this small museum owns a rare Coppo di Marcobaldo, one of the earliest painters to adapt the style of Byzantine art. It's remarkable. See it if you can avoid Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays when they are closed.

This seems to be a museum of leftovers. Some decent Jesus & Maria's on the ground floor. Do check out St. John making a heavy metal 'death wish' hand gesture on the first triptych, right after the entrance. Hilarious portrays on the third floor: ugly...More
