If you interested in birds you will enjoy this. There is s variety of species well presented. The first section has done very old pieces of stoneware, coins etc. it doesn't take long to visit and was quiet when we there despite the crowds on the main street

This small museum is a little off the beaten track, but quite interesting exhibits of many birds in glass cases. Pervasive smell. All labeling and info in Latin/Italian only.

It is a small but free museum housed in an old church. I believe there are about 700 specimens, some of them rare birds like the Upupa Epops, or so we were told. An enjoyable 1/2 hour for amateur birders and naturalist.
