You can't visit Urbino and not get a guided tour of the house and on the life of a person that changed the course of history like the Duke of Urbino, added bonus the two Rafaels that are on display in the castle!

Beautiful palace in beautiful Urbino! The Palazzo Ducale is the main attraction of Urbino, and it looks impressive, especially from outside and from the courtyards. The interior of the palace houses the Art Gallery of the Marche, with a number of outstanding works of art by Pietro della Francesca and Raphael. There are also beautifully decorated doors and tapestries.
It is however advisable to go in summer rather than winter since the building has no heating.

Great building in very good condition. Art museum was reasonable but not many Raffaele paintings. Be sure to visit the underground rooms.

You just feel like crying of emotion when you go into the main courtyard. Wonderful place, very well kept, amazing art collection. Pity that the guards speak among them almost shouting... It was a bit shocking.

Evviva Urbino!!!!! :-)

We had pre bought entry tick as we though will make easy for us to get in with a pram, we have received an email after completing the purchase of the entry ticket it states we can ether print the PDF or show the staff on our smartphone to prove the purchase, as we approach the gate they had just giving us the get around from on both to another with the last lady had told us to go out and go three blocks down the street and not even explain where and who should we see, as you meant to have print and the tickets out which was not clearly stated, so we ended up just brought another two tickets as we have a 4 moths old baby and it is 4 degrees out side, it was an horrible experience with the staff there 0 for customer service. 5 for the Ducale. You must stop at the cafe for a coffee great service and coffee.
