This unassuming gem has now got its first floor apartments restored to Bonapartian splendour, and is well worth a visit (generally from about late afternoon to evening opening times). If there's an art exhibition on, even better. Having seen the building evolve over the past...More

This Museum is in the appatments of the nice Paolina Bonaparte, this is still an argument to visit this place, here you find musical instruments, you see nice frescos; also they expose some archeological pieces; if you want to see more of Paolina, you must...More

Completely low-key and what I would say was a self-effacing museum, I would skip the ground floor archaeology and instruments, and have a look upstairs at the marvellous trompe l'oeil decorated rooms on the first floor. They may only be open when there's an special...More

Once you've managed the opening hours seize the chance to get inside. Not too interested in arrow heads, go upstairs and admire the rooms. Many have some or all of the original decor and give a sense of how the house was lived in. For...More

I chose the Palazzo Paolina to have my civil ceremony in, I was not disappointed. The room where I got married was so pretty so much detail on the walls. It was the bedroom of Shelley (Napoleons sister) when she reigned Lucca. The staff were...More
