Museum and Palazzo Ducale are viewed as one and the same. See previous review. Federico di Montefeltro is the key character in this town and he dedicated most of his adult life to arts and sciences, thus the museum is his pieces of art.

Nice collection of artworks from the renaissance through to the 19th century It is situated in the heart of Urbino. It could be difficult with people who have mobility problems.

An enormous and wonderful building filled with works of art. Not to be missed if you visit Urbino. I especially liked the huge variety of Madonna and child paintings. But the building was just as wonderful as the pictures.

The old paintings in here are amazing. It is definitely worth a visit - especially on a rainy day. The palace itself is also worth walking round. There is also some fabulous inlaid wood.

It is a real pleasure to walk around the Palace, almost alone, and enjoy, amongst other objects, lots of Works of Art by the famous Italian legends of the Renaissance period from Tizian to Raphael and Bellini to Piero della Francesca. There are a number of major works (on display) amongst them (check out photos attached).

An excellent museum with real masterworks. Don't forget Rafael's home town, so not by chance there are some paintings from him. But there are so much to see, it is not enough to run through the galleries, you should take your time.

Yes really it is - although there is other art in the former Ducal Palace, they provide an upholstered seat from which you can gaze at Piero della Francesca's "Flagellation of Christ". Urbino is yet another fortified hilltop town with other attractions and restaurants, but it is worth the trip - and we drove over the Mountains of the Moon... More

Mention Raphael and my antennae are bristling. Mention Urbino and my artistic fibres are aflame and excited. The city is my type of urbane delight. It houses, the National Museum of the Marches in the Ducal Palace, one of, if not, the most prestigious in all of Italy. Its not a grand claim for this is where Raphael was born... More

The 5€ admission was quite the value with access to the palace AND art of the masters of the Marche region, including Rafaello and his father, as well as Piero della Francesca.
