Why not make a small detour before/after your visit to the Parco Ducale? Unless, of course, you want to make it a destination. I found it well worth it. Pictures and mementos of the Maestro in all his glory. Small museum, not overwhelming with friendly...More

This is one of the better museums to evoke a musician. In this case it happens to be Arturo Toscanini, considered by many to be the greatest conductor of all time. He knew Verdi and Puccini and all the great composers of his time. He...More
