The Palazzo degli Oddi, then Clarelli Marini, today House Museum is located in the heart of the city of Perugia in the area where there were already in the medieval era homes of the family, in one of the five most important streets leading to the main square. The palace was built around the middle of the sixteenth century and was inhabited until the middle of nineteenh century. The last owner, the Marchioness Barbara Marini Clarelli, painter, restorer and expert in local history, for testamentary disposition wanted it to be set up a foundation that would combine his name with that of her beloved husband, the famous art historian Francesco Santi in such a way that the Palace could be made accessible and could become a place of study for the history of degli Oddi family, one of the oldest Italian nobility that significantly had a significant influence on the history of Perugia during the Middle Ages. Today the House Museum still bears historical furnishings.

A very interesting visit to a fascinating Casa Museo, excellent guides clearly describing the history of Perugia and the history of the Oddi family and the Baglionis. Particularly interesting is the visit to the rooms on the first floor, beautifully furnished and full of personal touches. Most enjoyable.

It was a nice surprise to find this quaint palazzo in a small and quiet street in Perugia. The story told by the guide was very interesting and I think they're doing a great restauration work. I hope they can continue, it is really worth it.

This House Museum is only open on two half days a week so make sure you are in Perugia at the right time. We had a wonderful tour of this old house, a former palace built in the mid-16th century.

Visits only sometimes be aware. When open the visits are guided and free, the house is beautiful and worth knowing if you have the time.

Excellent guided tour in Italian or English though the guide was kind enough to put up with my modest Italian. Interesting house with nice view over the back and mostly original furniture which is unusual. This viewing is free, with the times as advertised. Well worth a visit
