We arrived at 12.40pm and the sign said that it was open until 1pm . They said that the sign was wrong and it closed at 12,45 for lunch and reopened at 2pm. We had heard that it was worth visiting but we could not...More
I was amazed at the extraordinary collection of religious works of art of the 13 and 14 centuries. They are very well exhibited with much care for the temperature etc.
The Boticelli works are extraordinary.
