It`s unnecessary to say that going upstairs and you see all these frescos everywhere, up to the IV.th floor it`s a mesmerizing feeling. The staircase was completely refurbished in the 90`s and now it`s in a perfect shape. The walls and the ceilings around the frescos are adorned by a gilded stuccowork wich harmonize very well with the yellow-ochre yellow walls.
Also the stained glass windows are amazing.
The post museum itself can be found on the first floor. Until the 90`s it was in the same building, but in a flat on the fourth floor. Visiting it costs only about 1,50 EUR, so if you like the staircase, you will love also the internals of this museum, but before entering, don`t forget to admire the ceiling of the staircase on the IV.th floor-->
