The small but charming Bandini Museum conserves significant Tuscan medieval and Renassaince art. Inside it you can admire paintings dating from XIII to XV centuries, as well as a small collection of byzantine works and terracottas by Della Robbia. Its silent and calm atmosphere will enchant you!

It's quite small, but it's also quite Good. A really nice selection of religious Icons, Della Robia ceramics & other antiquities. Adjacent small garden is a refreshing green spot. Quality items seen. Get a Combination Ticket when visiting the Roman theater & ruins...
