Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
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.

  • Visiting Urbino is must see. Beautiful and groomed can be admired, as well as the structure of the building, which by itself is a masterpiece of architecture, works of inestimable artistic value.

  • I agree with all the reviews read. I was fascinated by the "dumb" by Raphael and especially from his hands. In my opinion is even more beautiful than the Mona Lisa. Advice: be accompanied by a professional guide.
