Of this huge palace, only a limited number of rooms are visible. They are nevertheless impressive. The picture gallery is stunning, with some of the most celebrated Italian artists being represented, first and foremost Raphael. Look for the unmissable and unforgettable Duke's studio, with breath-taking wood inlay masterpieces.

Very well mantained and displayed artwork, though it can be wearisome to attempt to navigate these rooms on your own. Also, without a guide one misses all the tears and joy associated with a rich period in Latin history.

My previous review of the ducal palace really included this national gallery of Marche. The actual palace is free entry at least on ground floor, but the next two levels hold the collection and the room decorations and is ticket entry. Extremely impressive place, especially the room decorations and enough paintings of note to make thoroughly informative and enjoyable visit.... More

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.
