Well worth the two euro fee. It's an astonishing little historical gem. Redolent of history and very peaceful and quiet

Teatrico Anatomico is an interesting site where anatomy was taught centuries ago. Tickets cost 3 Euros per adult with children free. You can visit the lecture theatre, with a marble operating table in the middle, and parts of the university library. It is quite interesting...More

An excellent opportunity to visit the first university of Europe and walk into the anatomy class. A room full of history. With the same ticket you can view another room containing old books which is also amazing.

A unique anatomy hall, where the students sat on stiff tiered benches surrounding a marble operating table, watching a professor demonstrate and teach anatomy.

Once used for anatomical lectures this is a very impressive and ornate wooden theatre. It was destroyed in WW2 but painstakingly rebuilt using all the original pieces salvaged from the rubble.

The anatomical theatre forms part of the original university and is all original other than for the marble slab. Really interesting to have a look round and get a bit of a sense of history - the live dissections were not just for students but...More

Part of the first university in the world. In this room the training of medieval doctors was carried out. The hall is also very interesting because of its rich wood carving.
