Palazzo Ducale di Urbino, Urbino

4.5
#1 of 89 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.
