  • We were lucky as this is not usually open on Sunday but as it was Easter, it was. The building was amazing and the ceilings unbelievable ( no photos allowed). All about medical things so maybe not...

  • Fascinating and quiet little museum on the top floor, very inexpensive admissions, too. It's only one room (and an attached library), but I spent probably 2 hours in there. A great collection of copies of old manuscripts you can flip through, early anatomical and medical texts, old medical tools, etc. Most labels are in Italian, so take some pictures for later (NO FLASH), or bring a dictionary/ Google Translate if you don't know any. Definitely a worthwhile stop though!
  • Amazing historical facade, as much as the interior. The "Scuola" hosts the Museum of History of Medicine, 5 centuries of pieces and textbooks . The direction of the Museum organizes a big amount of cultural events. Closed on Monday. Not to loose.
