Reasonable priced at $10.00 Euros. The Michaelangelo, Head of a Woman, was alone worth the price of admission. Loved all the Corregio paintings, collection of Maria Luigia, and the bronzes from Rome not to mention the Teatro Farnese where we happen on a rehearsal in...More

The theater is breath-taking and unlike anything we've seen. And the museum has a collection of exquisite works -- especially early Renaissance. Very good throughout

Visiting Palazzo della Pilotta one should keep very clear in mind the fact that it looks almost spartan in its decoration, this is due to the fact that it was never conceived as a residence but as an annex to it with an immense library...More
