Faenza is a smaller town to visit but the International Ceramic Museum is definitely worth a visit if you are into pottery and history. Varying displays from all over the world and in many eras in a well apponted building. While we were there they...More

This is surprisingly large museum. There are lot of items on display maybe even too much. Best part of the museum is the modern works. Go straight there if you want to see unique items other than plates. They have even Picasso on display.

You'll see the ancient ceramics, some with surprisingly modern decor, as well as some 20th cent pieces by renowned makers, all very well presented.

An excellent, if mentally fatiguing, tour de force of the history of ceramics, and the special role Faenza played in the creation of the Italian, and European industry.

Yes. But I think it's better and less expensive to visit one of the many ceramic makers who run their own shops. I recommend the one opposite the Hotel Vittoria
