Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino
(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I visited the Palazzo Ducale because I was interested in the temporary exhibition on Baroque toys (really very very beautiful, full of curiosity and well set out!), is a place not to be missed! Beautiful the studiolo. Friendly and helpful staff, a caretaker graciously opened one of the balconies on the towers to let us enjoy a spectacular sunset, made our visit even more special! Little café provided for snacks and refreshments.

  • A majestic place. It's cold inside. Angels of the fireplace garlands are great! You should be hard to live in that time.
