This is the "pay" section of the Palazzo Ducale. Unbelievable highlights lay within from the great masters - get a guide to explain it all to you. Also the Wood carved panels and doors very stunning.

When we last visited Urbino a couple of years ago, the palace was undergoing restoration and quite a lot of it was closed off. So it was a great pleasure this time to find it back to its beautiful best. While I can think of better Italian art collections than this one, its setting in these elegant and harmonious Renaissance... More

We made a long drive over the mountains specifically to see this world class art museum, and specifically the works of Piero Della Francesco. The prize piece, the Flagellation of Christ, is amazing in its construction, and it's challenge for interpretation. I get it. It's a masterpiece. For me the haunting eyes of the Christ child, in the Presentation, are... More

Loved this visit and in particular the works of Piero del Francesco. I expected more works by Rafaello but there were many other interestings works to see. Nice little coffeeshop in the beautiful courtyard.

A vast collection of religious works, Rafael's Mute and Nude that shocked the people of the time but admired by a pope. Tapestries, St George and the dragon and exquisite marquetry room

OK, I'm biased, I LOVE Piero del Francesco and Ucello. The gallery would still be worth it without the works of those two headliners.

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.
