In the old town centre of Perugia, near the Cathedral and Etruscan Well, an old palace dating to the 17th Century houses a valuable collection of paintings, porcelains, printed works, manuscripts and embroidered fabrics. The stately mansion of the Marchesi Bourbon di Sorbello welcomes visitors in rooms with vaulted ceilings, elegant 18th Century furnishings and chandeliers, as well as an evocative vista over Perugia and the Valley of Assisi.

This is an amazing home to visit, with furnishings, paintings etc. like they would have been hundreds of years ago. Brilliant, and part of the admission price includes access to the Etruscal well (Pozzo Etrusco)

Well preserved and organized Palazzo in Perugia Center. The guide was excellent providing many facts and explaining all the available memorabilia. Beautiful views from the terrace. Bring your camera. They have a small shop where you can buy souvenirs, books etc. related to the visit.

Not interesting, unless you like to hear a family story. Quite large library, some family pictures and portraits, and some embrodery.

A unique old palace museum with interesting history. The library is famous--especially for WWI and WWII documents, and illustrated children's books. Beautiful frescoes in the Baroque style. There is an incredible view from the terrazzo in the back.

Beautiful palazzo, full of history and an interesting detailed guided tour. The view from the terrace towards basilica San pietro is outstanding.

Not only is the museum itself worth visiting but the foundation offers frequent book presentations and conferences taking advantage of the presence of one of the oldest universities in Europe.
