This is one that you can get into free with the Bolonga Welcome card but only 5 Euro if not. Impressive building with great ceilings. Interesting English Garden room in fresco at the end of one corridor. Fascinating ramp (for horse and carriages originally) rather than staircase to get to the upper floors where the museum is.

There’s really no excuse for not visiting the Comunali D’Arte when in Bologna, because it’s on Piazza Maggiore in the city centre. Entrance to the building itself, plus some of the work rooms and the impressively ornate council chamber, is free. These alone are worth a visit; but the real treasure – medieval paintings, and the state rooms of Cardinal Legates – are well worth paying a little extra for. Some ceilings and walls are works of art in themselves. It’s not at all touristy, and not many people go – so take advantage of the lack of crowds! The view over the Piazza from the final state room (ask an attendant to open a window) also yields a different perspective than that from the streets below. Take a camera.
I particularly liked the wide staircases leading up into and within the building. They were designed so that visiting medieval dignitaries could actually ride their horses up to the council chamber, or less active ones could be carried upwards in their sedan chairs. A timeless building, still in everyday use today. What a privilege it must be to work there ….

This museum, housed in state appartements of one pope or another has a couple of nicely frescoed rooms and a couple of interesting pieces but - the last room in the museum (yes - you have to walk all the way to the end) is the Sala Boschereccia. It is truly one of the most beautifully frescoed rooms I have seen. Painted to resemble a terrace set in a park, you can literally hear the gushing of the fountains, the putti play and the breeze in the trees.
