Opposite the Duomo, so you can't miss it. There is an entrance fee. There are several rooms open to view and in doing so, you get an idea of the grandeur of this place. Original furniture and amazing art work make for an interesting visit....More

A miniature version of the palace of Urbino, with some very similar characteristics, including a scaled-down courtyard and a “studiolo” decorated with marquetary. There was an exhibition of sculpture by a local artist in the basement, and an exhbitionof posters and a few works from...More

This is a palace full of paintings, not a lot of anything else but the paintings are wonderful. The information cards that are in each room make your visit very enjoyable. The wonderful wooden studio (even if it is a copy) has been done so...More

Based on some negative reviews, I almost decided to give this a miss - thank goodness I chose to ignore them and make up my own mind. I will accept that, unlike many of the Country piles we visit in the UK, the rooms here...More
