Hidden beauty

If you are in Mantova you should visit Palazzo Te! Amazingly beautiful , decorated by frescos of Giulio Romano. For me it was a huge aesthetic experience.

Outstandingly maintained palace with explanations in both Italian and English. The palace is divided into a number of exhibition rooms with great representation of Renaissance history from the 14 and 15th century. Gives a very good idea of the history and grandeur of the region.

Interesting place. Its has very little in the way of contents, mostly just rather odd, curious, interesting and impressive decor. Slightly outside the centre of Mantua but walking distance and well worth a visit. There are some amazing sights. When we visited there was also a rather intriguing little temporary exhibition of communist art - agricultural and factory workers, labour... More

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.
