The art inside of these rooms is simply stunning, really out of this world. There's just SO much detail and care (and gold) in every single inch of the room.

Just 3 rooms, but how amazing! Richly decorated, colorful (the museum keeper told us some people considered too colorful, contesting the latest restoration, but for sure the result is nearer to the original then the black patch that left untouched). Pity you can't take any...More

The Exchange Guild consists of only two rooms, but what rooms and what a view! The view, of course, is of frescoes painted by local home-boy favorite Perugino and his pupils (including, probably, Raphael) in the waning years of the 15th century. The colors are...More
