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 was a huge surprise. Tucked away across the bridge over no water...next to a beautiful park...a small birth home. This could be so much more if they allowed them to sell music and make money to expand. You must learn of Benito and Arturo's...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

Pleasant place to spend an hour or so. I'm not a music history buff by any means, but after many years of playing in wind ensembles, I can understand the significance of this place! Admission fee is extremely reasonable, and a unique collection of photos,...More
