The palace, partially rebuilt in Neoclassic style after the fire of 1777, is now a cultural center and art museum with a wide range of modern and classical pieces. A chapel showcases frescoes from the 17th century. Outside the palace, you can explore among the lemon trees, Mediterranean flowers, and sculptures.

  • Beautiful Palazzo, today is a public building with exhibits and activities. Unfortunately on my visit various rooms were closed or busy with events.

  • A figure of b.s.. I had 3 very kind guests who wanted to offer a little refreshment from the heat in the afternoon and I had the bad idea of joining this club. The place looks good, within the sumptuous setting of the Palazzo Ducale, a well-ventilated exterior deor, sheltered from traffic noise and crowd. So, with this in mind, it took all the lack of professionalism of the orderly room to make me look bad with my guests. Apart from the snooty air with which turn up to customers, the protagonist has reached the heights of hospitality industry immediately throwing with underutilized a ticket on the table and declaring loudly "38 euros!" without the Board was not even a glass of mineral water. Prepayment, so to avoid that you ran off without paying, evidently, and embarrassment of my gracious hosts in knowing the price of my attempted hospitality. The sequel was not as bright as it's been a quarter of an hour without nobody came to tell us that you could access a buffet inside. Thankfully, eventually one of the guys in the bar, moved by compassion, evidently was gracious in ragguardarci, while the maid of the Hall continued to ignore us preferring to tidy up, noisily, chairs and tables. Perhaps we should move the Lady cleaning of dishes and leave the contact with the public in some professional most qualified. Not that making the scullery maid won't take damage, but at least the highest professionalism, however, concern the corruption of a few dishes and not the image of a nice Pub. Sin but Crozza is quite right, the ligurians are not brought to the tourist professions ... Dr. Ing. R. Cipson
