Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Marche / Province of Pesaro and Urbino / Urbino / Palazzo Ducale di Urbino
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 place is a wonderful piece of architecture. It is a gem from the Renaissance and you can easily appreciate its beauty. more »
This Palazzo was a joy to visit. The beauty and workmanship was superb. Well worth a visit. The study had such fine marquetry that it is worth the visit all by itself, more »
Great place! Very interesting to see technologies used to maintain such palace in medieval age. Interesting collection of paintings, including the Mute by Rafael.
There are some great paintings. Highly recommended. If you believe this review is useful, then please 'like' it.
