AS the last reviewer said these ceilings are stunning. Photos just don't do them justice. We had it quite quiet so could sit and be amazed. Small price to pay for such art. Again as said the attendant on our day was very helpful and knowledgeable. Before the ceiling rooms note the profiled painting remnants on the walls. Don't miss... 更多
The other reviewers have described the amazing ceilings well. Really glad we visited, it's only a small place, but for 2 euro great value. The attendant was most helpful and pleasant when we made a mistake with what we'd thought we're composite tickets for the national gallery and this venue.
An atmospheric Monastery garden led me to the Camera di San Paolo. There are two rooms, quite small, with glorious trompe l'oeil decoration.

This place was hard to find, inadequate signage and road works, but worth the trouble. (On Via Macedonio Malloni, but set far back from the road) Since there was nothing in English to guide me and my information was gleaned from the internet I am guessing that this chamber is from the Italian High Renaissance period and the ceiling in... 更多
If you are interested in renaissance, this is your place. Wonderful ceiling frescos from Corregio. If you didn't knew his works, it is time to study it.
