This small museum is a little off the beaten track, but quite interesting exhibits of many birds in glass cases. Pervasive smell. All labeling and info in Latin/Italian only.

It is a small but free museum housed in an old church. I believe there are about 700 specimens, some of them rare birds like the Upupa Epops, or so we were told. An enjoyable 1/2 hour for amateur birders and naturalist.
