The hall is quite understated, but when you get further information about it you begin to understand the history. Well worth reading up before a visit to get the full value.

We were in for just a few minutes, but the building and the atmosfere there was overwelming. Would be great to be able to see more of the university. Ore to spend more time reading about it.

Allow more time than you think you need and read up a decent guide book before you go. The whole place is so amazing, with so much art especially on the ceiling and high on the walls, it is monumental. Loved it.

The history of this place is totally amazing. The frescos and architecture alone are. Worth visiting. Use the Bologna Welcome card and go as part of the walking tour and it’s free to enter. Otherwise there is a charge.

Beautifully restored and very tactile - the carvings were amazing and one can only wonder what it was like to be attending a lecture in such surroundings. Visiting the library was a bonus.
