We wanted to visit Palazzo Te since seeing it on a BBC program called "Francesco's Italy, Top to Toe," back in 2006. We were not disappointed and you won't be either. The Palazzo Te is stunning. Each "Chamber" has a unique historical/mythical or artistic theme. The base reliefs and frescoes are magnificent. Most impressive is the Chamber of the Giants... More

This is an exceptional museum. Prices are reasonable and crowds are small. Room after room amazes and delights. Visit when your energy is high and your time unlimited. This is a place to be savored like a good wine.

The Fall of the Titans is the most extraordinary work of art from its time. If you are interested in the Renaissance, go see it!

We walked from Hotel Casa Poli to Palazzo Te. The grounds were beautiful. The paintings, sculptures and artifacts were wonderful and sometimes breathtaking. This is a great Palazzo and a Must See, you will not be disappointed.

I love the Palazzo del Te and have visited it several times and this was the best. Whenever I've visted in the past there have been hoards of school children who are never interested anyway. This time there were a handful of people and photography is now allowed.The building is stunning and the main rooms have fascinating frescoes. The architecture... More

As with the rest of Mantova, there were few other tourists and much to see. Palazzo Te had some of the best frescos we saw I Italy. It was such a pleasure to wander about inside and out.

A very interesting building/museum. No lines, not much of a crowd. Easy walk from the Casa Poli Hotel. Highly recommended if you visit Mantova.

If you only have time to visit one place in Mantova, this would be it. The frescos in the various rooms are amazing. It was interesting to see frescos without any religious themes..in fact, just the opposite...lots of artwork on mythical subjects that get a bit races .
