Located on the second floor of the Academia de Bellas Artes (whose graffiti-covered first floor is a sadly run down university with classrooms, offices, and poorly maintained plaster copies of ancient statues). The museum is well laid out, empty when we visited (how nice!), and very strong in pre-Renaissance and Renaissance art, with a few modernists (Modigliani) thrown in.

It's one of the most impressive Renaissanse art galleries in Italy. I've visited it more than once and every time I go there I feel like time has stopped. It is so rich that if you want to visit it in detail and admire the entire collection, I think that one day is not enough. The museum offers very good audioguides, but if you don't have much time and you want to see the most important masterpieces there, my advice is to visit it with a professional giude who can explain the paintings and help you appreciate them.

A feast for the eyes, so many fantastic works of art. It's worth getting a guide and keeping to the major works otherwise one gets satiated!!

It is almost too large to comprehend as there is so much art to see and try to absorb. If you truly understand art and it's significance,you could spend a day there.

Free for over 65's. A bit convoluted to find the entrance as the building is shared with the University and there were students going to and fro. It is upstairs. A couple of lovely Canalettos were the highlight for me, otherwise lots of religious paintings and statues, all a bit of a jumble, but hey not bad for free access. Plenty of good eating places in the neighbourhood which is not overly touristy as in the heart of fashion shops.
