The Camera is a one -room that sings of the genius that is Mantegna. As small as it is, I spent over 1 hour completely mesmerized by its beauty. If you visit the Palazzo Ducale, your entrance fee covers the Camera degli Sposi. Please do not overlook this, you would regret it.

One of the greatest fresco cycles of the 15th century Italian renaissance by the then rulers of Mantua,the Gonzagas’s...in most places as fresh as the day it was painted...a must see

This is only one room of the hundreds in the Ducal Palace but still well worth its separate entry on TripAdvisor. It's the only place (combined with the video in the previous room) where you get a feeling for the Gonzaga family who built the Palace over some four centuries. The entry times to the various parts of the complex seem to vary so the most important thing you need to do when buying a ticket to the Palace is to make sure when and if you can enter the Camera degli Sposi, particularly given that at the busier times of the year the numbers entering the room are confined to a small number at a time. If our experience is anything to go by the rather indifferent staff and explanatory board re times and prices may irritate in this endeavour. But you have to see this room!

This room is not to be missed when in Mantova and worth the travel. Mantegna created an absolute masterpiece.

This is one room within the palace of the duke and also the absolute highlight. Incredibly detailed frescoes and illusions by Mantegna.
