They have (thanks God) moved the artworks from the really old churches when rebuilding and redecorating those. The quality of many pieces is exquisite, and you can watch them as close as you wish. Mostly romanesque figures and some fabulous mosaics, but also several stunning...More

By far the coolest thing I saw in Pavia. The size and age are amazing with great gardens and a cool moat surrounding it.

The museum is really a collation of several units, over three levels and under one roof (and one admission ticket). They consist of a small collection of archeological remains, a largish pinacoteque from late gothic to late 19th century, a small ensemble of romanic and...More

The castle is beautiful, but it could be better preserved. Anyway it is interesting to be visited. The exposition that has been announced was about Monet, but it was disapointing. Practically no important Monet paintings, some few from his daughter done at Giverny and some...More
