Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino

4.5
#1 of 89 in Museums in Marche
Art Museum 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.

  • This is a result of rooms with religious paintings. We see furniture, period clothing. So it was not to be expected: so, we were a little disappointed. By contrast beautiful buildings. We however enjoyed visiting parts of easements (kitchen, stables, laundries...)

  • This wonderful Palace is worth a visit with or without guidance. The Renaissance structure is beautiful, there are two floors with famous and wonderful paintings by Raphael in Urbino is home to Piero della Francesca. In theaters entertain visitors also woodwind and small concerts of the time. Children do not pay the ticket, while adults only 6.50 euro. In the courtyard of the building they put a high-gloss steel modern sculpture that frankly is a note a little off-key.
