We bought tickets to visit the gallery and were surprised when told that as well as entry to the gallery they allowed us to view another 3 attractions: the archeological museum, the biblioteca and the teatro Farnese. The undoubted highlight was the theatre - a...More

The theater is breath-taking and unlike anything we've seen. And the museum has a collection of exquisite works -- especially early Renaissance. Very good throughout
