A trip to the museum needs a minimum half- day, and probably a return, to absorb the rich collection of masterpieces.

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.

Urbino is one of the most amazing places in all of Italy. Truth in advertising, we were there several years ago in March for work and had the chance to wander through the streets and came upon this lovely gallery. English text made the exhibits far more enjoyable: the il Greco fireplace, painting of Raphael (the silent one--memorialized by the... More

Housed in the Palazzo Ducale, the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche houses one of the most important collections of Renaissance art in the world. The Duke of Urbino's famous studiolo is well worth seeing and an excellent example of the art of intarsia (wood inlay). This isn't the best art museum in the world, but if you're in Urbino, or are...

Impressed by the texts in English. An actress gave a performance of the mecenate who created the collection and donated it to the Town Pesaro. The collection is fine, the actress was good. There is a small painting, a head of an old man by Rubens. Beautiful.

The grandeur of the ducal palace seemed the perfect setting for this great collection. There are too many paintings to enjoy them all, so we accelerated half-way round in order to appreciate the best on offer. And when we suddenly came to Piero della Francesca's 'Flagellation', it was truly arresting and intriguing.

The collection of paintings is part of the museum in Ducal palace. In gallery you can see mostly works from the period of late gothic and renessance and some baroque works. It manly consist of the works of lesser known (but quality) artists from Marche and Toscana region. Three main attractions are Silent Woman of Raffael (artist born in Urbino),... More

The Palazzo Ducale holds an astonishing collection of art (and fireplaces!), but by far the most amazing were the two small works by Piero della Francesca. Absolutely worth the trip.

Urbino is a charming city of art. It offers scenografic views of Palazzo ducale with its famous two towers. Inside palazzo Ducale there is the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche with a wide collection of Rinascimento masters and the "studiolo" of duke Federico, a small room with wonderful wooden decoration. The city is small and full of young people because there... More

I was definitely looking forward to a visit to the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, housed in the Palazzo Ducale; it has the makings of a great museum; art (from the 14th to the 17 century) displayed in a fabulous palace, but in the end I was disappointed. I visited in February and maybe because it’s off season, they were doing... More
