    Greatly exceeded expectations - Francesco was spectacular guide!

    Galileo Museum is much larger than expected. Chronicles the development of all kinds of scientific instruments from before Galileo up until about WWII. Our guide, Francesco, has a PhD in art history and teaches in local schools. He was very knowledgeable and passionate, and made the history come alive. Can praise him enough. We were extremely lucky to have him for a private guide. Highly recommend this museum if you even a slight interest in how science changed the world.
