  • Do not be deterred by the entrance. To the right of the door at No.11 use the top left intercom buzzer. Once inside, absolutely fabulous !! I love that the owner lives in the apartment and has decorated home with the collection, which is elegant in its own way. You get an intro tour and can then wander the rooms. I have no problem with paying an entry fee, a lot goes into this and you get personal guiding. Highly recommended. #stanzealgenio
  • Really special experience - fascinating. We just rocked up without warning shortly before it closed and we were given an interesting, intimate and very friendly tour through the palazzo and collection (in English). A must!
