Any trip to Urbino (and Marche for that matter) should include a visit to Palazzo Ducale. Built in the late 1400’s, this palace has been kept in near perfect condition and now houses a great collection of renaissance art - including Raffaello’s ‘La Muta’ and...More

Built for Federico da Montefeltro and his family around the 15th century, this is an imposing structure worthy of visiting for the palazzo itself, and the collections belonging to the National Gallery of the Marche housed on the 1st and 2nd floor. The round floor...More

We visited with a friend who was able to give us a great guided tour. The home of Raphael and his famous Mute. Lots of great art and history. About 2 hours needed to see it all

We were late, so we could not visit this palace and gallery inside. But from outside the palace looks very magnificent. It is really nice to walk around the palace and then maybe drink a coffee nearby.

The Ducal Palace is very big, dominating the small city of Urbino. Much of the interior is now bare walls, with some surviving decoration. Really it is the art that makes it worth visiting and occasionally it does link up with the original builders where...More

Exterior is amazing, interior appears to be ripped off. I thought I was walking in a Calvinism palace with walls and ceilings all painted white. The decorations could improve. The gardens also need some work. The tower view pretty awesome and you get some great...More

You can't visit Urbino and not get a guided tour of the house and on the life of a person that changed the course of history like the Duke of Urbino, added bonus the two Rafaels that are on display in the castle!

Beautiful palace in beautiful Urbino! The Palazzo Ducale is the main attraction of Urbino, and it looks impressive, especially from outside and from the courtyards. The interior of the palace houses the Art Gallery of the Marche, with a number of outstanding works of art...More
