Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino

4.6
#1 of 166 in Museums in Marche
Palazzo Ducale di Urbino reflects Federico's dedication to using pagan imagery to decorate the medieval walls. A small study that faces away from the city and toward the duke's rural lands is the central element. The latticework, paintings, and benches here are stellar examples of Italian inlay. The shelves are filled with musical scores, books, and scientific instruments that reflect the duke's broad interests. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this Renaissance structure built into the side of a hill.

  • Very nice to visit, especially the dungeons and torricini which offers a beautiful view over the city. The two floors are mainly paintings and furniture, interesting the alcove.

  • Lie in front of the flagellation by Piero della Francesca alone is worth the visit to this building that conceals many other artworks of the Renaissance exhibited in beautiful surroundings. Only the studiolo apotheosis of Renaissance style. Lovely view from the towers, one of which is open every Saturday. In Italy there is not much to see, the Doge's Palace is certainly one of these

  • Truly a gem. An outstanding example of renaissance architecture and a gallery with masterpieces of Piero della Francesca, Paolo Uccello and Raffaello.
  • A beautifully kept up piece of Italian history full of art and stories from the past.
  • Great museum with important works of art such as La Muta by Raffaello.
