This is a well preserved palace which has a great audio tour. Does not look like much from the outside but inside it is great. Nice gardens as well. Enjoy

The palace of Tirano, turned into a museum is absolutely worth a visit. Entrance is 7€, and the audio guide is included. Really nice little tour and the palace has some amazing fresco paintings and other decorations very well preserved.

I went here mainly for the gardens but decided to do the whole place. We were glad we did. An audio self guided tour is included and was very interesting. The trompe l'oeil fresco painting is amazing.

Visited Palazzo Salis after taking the Bernina Express into Tirano. Entry is EUR 7 and they give you an audio guide which explains the history of the place very well. Well worth spending the time to see the place.
