This was probably my favorite part of my trip to Bologna. I was amazed to see the level of detail in the wood carvings in this all-wood classroom. It was also cool just to see how a college lecture hall was set up several hundred...More

For €3 it's tempting to rush your visit here as it feel a little disappointing due to being one room. If you don't take your time to stop, read the information card, and enjoy the space you will likely feel short changed. Remember to use...More

It wasn’t what we expected. Just a tiny room, with a marble table in the middle. Saw the old library as well, but not a must see.

So amazing to see this early lecture theatre where anatomy was taught and the church monitored the teaching to make sure it was acceptable. The whole University establishment that surrounds it is full of history and significance. Well worth the visit

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
