Contained but well-curated 19th and 20th Century collection. Also, the garden is marvelous and you don’t need a ticket to visit it. Excellent spot for a quick visit, and free with the Bordeaux City Pass.

Excellent, exquisite and quite beautiful. The lighting in some of the spaces is sometimes a bit off but I bet that will change if they had more space. There are three buildings included in the ticket. I recommend stopping at Rimon restaurant when going to the third building.

With the same ticket you can visit the 2 wings + art gallery (2min walk). Is a small collection, so is a great visit if you don’t have much time. The gardens are also lovely. Recommended ;)

A lovely and well-laid out museum. It’s not extensive but the work displayed is beautiful and it’s actually nice not to have to spend hours in a museum! Loved the portraits and also appreciated the use of lockers for free.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
