A visit to the Palazzo Comunale is something special. You see some of the very famous violins, and you can also see the frescos, and a part of the nice building.

No one in the Tourist Info office spoke English and could explain where to buy the tickets (in a cafe). No signage to direct you to the location of the museum. Very frustrating and time comsuming to find this small collection!!!

I like the idea of visiting the Violins Museum and to have someone to play the violins. The violins were from Stradivari, Amati and Guarnieri. All the very best
