The city palace is a great place in visit in Udaipur, especially if you're looking to get out of the scorching sun. Depending on the time of year you visit, it's not too crowded (go during May and you'll feel alone). Sauntering through the narrow passageways of the palace allows you to indulge your castle exploration fantasy, where you're never sure who or what will be around the next corner. The fees are a little steep compared to the rest of the prices in the area. There's the entry fee, the audio guide fee and the camera fee, which adds up to 500+ rupees. While not bad compared to Western museum prices, it adds up. The trip is worth it though just because there's such a variety of artifacts in the palace (not to mention the impressive architecture of the palace itself). One minute you'll be looking at colonial era rifles, the next, 400 year old paintings, and then you'll see a royal toilet. It's a vast amount of Rajasthan history packed into the palace. There are also magnificent views of the lake palace from the top floor. Most of Udaipur's tourism is centered on outdoor activities: boat rides, horse treks, etc. So if you're looking for something fun to do indoors, the city palace isn't a bad place to spend a few hours.

The City Palace of Udaipur is a must see place when in Udaipur, it`s huge, Magnificent and well maintained, there are lots of authorized guides available to brief you around, we paid Rs 150/- for the service , the entry fee is Rs 115/-, there`s a separate fee of Rs 525/- if you want to see the Crystal Museum , yes the fee is too steep for common man but the collection is magnificent , just recently the Silverware Museum within the City Palace is opened which is not to be missed , the Pride of this section is the Horse Carriage made out of Silver ! Since the City Palace is maintained under the direct supervision of His Majesty The Maharaja Arvind Singh Ji Mewar, the Palace and the Museums are very well maintained , managed and in perfect condition , mosaics, murals and marble carvings are amazingly well preserved, the view of Lake Pichola is awesome from the palace , the City Palace is a perfect blend of History and Architecture

City Palace is one of the most well maintained Palace's of the Maharana of Udaipur, mainly because the Maharana of Udaipur still stays nearby and takes great pride. It is a unique marvel overlooking the Lake Pichola and is full of historical date, artifacts etc that are presented in a very nice manner depicting the historical details and how the Maharana's of Udaipur used to live. The palace is lit up during the evening and looks very beautiful from Lake Palace ... It is a must visit in Udaipur!

The palace is amazing and one would need 2-3 hours for a good visit. Since it is managed by private trust, it is expensive too.
