It is nicely arranged with the audio tour. You go through it in your own pace. Many things to see in this collection. It makes you want to be a part of that era. Rich collection in great condition.

The Palazzo Falson was interesting both for the many diverse items on display - chain mail, medieval weapons, paintings, glass, kitchen utensils, rugs, furniture - but also the building itself. The man who assembled the eclectic collection lived in the house until the 1960s (I...More

Especially memorable were the watch and armoury collection in this ancient palace. Worth trying in the morning to give time to enjoy the visit.
