Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino

4.6
#1 of 183 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.

  • deserves to be seen, a beautiful palace with a few works of art inside but really excellent
    View original
  • This beautiful Palace is a small fortified town designed by Federico da Montefeltro in order to surpass all the other princely residences of Italy. With the ticket taken together with Gradara Castle (saved a few euros) at 9.00 we start our visit that will take us to visit all the floors and numerous rooms of this beautiful place. Take all the time you need to visit it all as it is really nice.

  • The palace of the dukes of Urbino is set like a jewel in the old town that frames it, a jewel further embellished by the two "towers".

  • What a little gem to visit while in Urbino. So worth the €8 entrance fee. You could spend hours here. Not to be missed is the Renaissance art collection.
  • Beautiful medieval Italian town. you must visit as a mid day tour. it is a historical place very well preserved. recommended!
  • Serene, beautifully proportioned, building. The courtyard is famous, but inside there are also airy rooms in which are properly displayed works including a Piero della Francesca, a Raphael, a Paulo Uccello, a room decorated in exquisite intarsia ... Absolutely lovely, and you won't get museum headache. Closed Monday afternoons.
  • Beautiful palazzo displaying a fantastic collection of Italian Renaissance art. Essential.
  • Amazing small Italian city with a great spirit. Stunning views for painting!
