Very interesting guided tour of residence with huge collection of tiles. Take the private tour if you are interested. It is relatively easy to find if you google map it.

This is such a quirky, interesting place where a chap has been collecting these beautiful, historically important tiles since he was a young boy. I think it's his life's passion as this is his own private collection inside his beautiful home. It is still a...More

We had a wonderful time in the museum with nice and informative explanations. The privately owned place is probably the largest collection of tiles in the world. Worth every cent! The entry looks unspectacular but inside it's a dream! You must ring the bell, it...More

You might think tiles aren't very exciting. Well, you'd be bang wrong. A fascinating museum in private rooms that isn't that easy to find. It's number 11, ring the bell as if it was an apartment, and check the opening times - you've got only...More

Not written about much in guide books or online, this place is well worth visiting. We booked a tour in advance as the museum is basically in a private house that only opens two hours a day. Our guide spoke incredibly good English and was...More

Amazing unique collection worth of millions nowadays. But this museum is not famous because it is private. Уникальная частная коллекция итальянской плитки. Но этот небольшой музей малоизвестен.

I am a ceramics and tile lover, so couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit. I wasn’t disappointed. This is a private collection of floor tiles from southern Italy, from handmade to more modern production. The tour is excellent explaining the history of processes and...More

This was such a surprise to see, the collection is very impressive and amazing to think it is part of a private residence. Beautiful tiles, from 1700-1800's, so many, you cannot take it all in. Claudio, our guide, was excellent and really made it fun....More
