This anantomy classroom is both historic and artistic. Seeing this old classroom was fascinating plus the artictic wood work is beautiful. Very class that we paid the small fee to see this.

I thought the Teatro Anatomico was a must see, but it was made super interesting because of our guide. There were a lot of people who weren't with our group and got the benefit of his review.

Really fascinating anatomical dissection theatre sey in a beautiful building. Entrance fee also allows you into Stabat Mater Hall and you can have a view of the library through the gated door. A real experience that you should not miss

Starting at 0400 hrs each day, an insight into how the field of anatomy & physiology become more informed over hundreds of years. Well worth the time for a visit. Demolished in the 2nd world war however rebuilt given its historical importance.

Only 3 Euros entrance and a short visit but definitely worth it. The room itself is fascinating bit it’s the artwork and coats of arms on the walls all around that surprised us.

A beautiful example of a 1600s Anatomical Teaching Theatre in the old university buildings in central Bologna. Bologna was/is a great centre of learning - it was the first university in the western world (the Arabs had earlier universities).
