  • It was a long time since I did a little spin par on the historic centre of modena, but when I got into via farini, and I traveled all the way down finding myself in front of the Doge's Palace I was astonished! The beauty laugh much anymore since this beautiful square was transformed into a pedestrian zone: rebuilt the square has added modern fountains if we add everything to a recent intervention of restoration with facade cleaning we have a result that I recommend to anyone tell see.

  • Although the visit you must register at certain times on weekends and by appointment is a must do. Unfortunately due to damage and theft perpetrated by Governor Farini that took control of the city to the Savoy in 1859 the Ducal heritage suffered serious disfigurement. However the visit helps you understand what was the richness and magnificence of the Este family.

  • Guided tour (in Italian) to book obligatorily and only the WE. Beautiful façade, but inside pretty disappointing because has been long a military Academy. The Palace is transformed in part in very interesting Museum of the Academy and we visit also some parts but quite a few. So disappointing visit and so not really helpful, Additionally it is followed by a military that forbidden to take any photo! However very nice guide!

  • A stunning marvel of architecture. The square that it stands on (Piazza Roma) is great for meeting up, ever since they replaced the parking lot with fountains. The palace is also impressive; a guided tour is sufficent to appreciating Modena's past.
  • Superb place!
  • nice palace in the heart of renaissance centre
  • Very nice shame that we cannot visit, being a military Academy

  • It is the story of Modena ... now the prestigious army Academy and arististico-cultural interest. Palazzo Ducale is situated in beautiful P.za Roma recently "renovated".
