absolutely not to be missed, especially for cruise passengers who visit Savona. The museum is about 15 km from the city center, and is located in a beautiful Villa Liberty

Interesting pieces, very nice people, sadly it is a little small. So either you are really interested in glass artisanship, but if you are in altare anyway it's definitely worth a visit! And they have coffee for 35ct! ;)
