This is a great place to visit when in Mantua. It is a twenty minute walk from downtown, or you can take a cab or take a local bus (the TI at Sant'Andrea will tell you which bus is best). We walked and didn't regret...More

With Mantova card and ample time in Mantova, this is worth a visit, otherwise there is nothing spectacular or of special mention, the gardens were disappointing.

I really loved the paintings on the all, the diversity inside the palace itself. Loved the room dedicated to Astrology, and especially the one with the paints of the Roman Gods. Incredible.

This place is magical. Wonderful rooms, one after another will make you walk nose up and mouth opened for a good hour. We visited during a Tiziano + G. Richter show, and it was the cherry on top of a sweet cake.

It's worth going and visiting this palace with amazing frecoes. There is also a lovely pond with fishes in the garden. When we went, we also had the surprise to have a Titian/Richter exhibition in the palace!

Hi! If you decide to take part to a visit with a guide (strongly advised), it would take about 2 hours / 2 hours and a half.
