Visitor route

The large hall, which is the main exhibition space in the museum, allows easy use due to its size and the absence of architectural barriers. The exhibition inside the Clock Tower is inaccessible to many users due to the stairs (narrow and steep, but with handrails).


There are no accessible toilets because they are located in the Palazzo del Podestà area which is currently closed for restoration. Toilets are occasionally made available for events with large crowds. In that case the toilets are accessible to all.

Additional facilities

There are no additional facilities and no services to facilitate knowledge of the church by blind and visually impaired persons.
