  • We went to visit the civic museums of Pavia inside the castle Visconteo and I have to say we were very disappointed. The castle from the outside is definitely very beautiful and scenic, even in the inner courtyard it looks good as a glance, what I did not like is however everything else. We arrive at the ticket office and are told that under 26 years of age we do not pay so we do two tickets, one whole (8th) and one free since under 26... we pay but we are not issued tickets! Fortunately we noticed and went straight back... Absurd. Plus we don't get a map, we don't even give anything out by voice... unheard of, the lady seemed to stand there for figure and that's it. The only thing we are told is that the archaeological section was temporarily closed because lunch break but that it would reopen soon, a matter of minutes. The fact is that half sections were closed (gipsoteca, Romanesque and archaeological section) and did not open even after, however we were charged a full ticket. There are also poor indications inside, the gallery and the 1800s, but considering everything else I think you can do without it.

  • Well-kept museum, easy ticket cost, Goya there were his original sketches, really fascinating. Mc Curry shows off his most important multimedia photos, including the famous woman with very deep eyes. Visit the civic museums, it's really worth it! There are always interesting exhibitions of the greatest painters and artists in the world
