Lots of very grand rooms to visit in this very palatial palace. Also some excellent art work particularly the ceiling frescoes.

Its huge and never ending and provides multiple opportunities for a good photo-op. We didn't take the tour but it was just a pleasure walking along side it in the gardens and the square separating it from the big cathedral next door.

The changing of the guard which takes place every half hour from eleven in the morning is well worth seeing as are the Sabatini gardens

Very nice interior !!! Free visits every evening from 18h-20h. Best if go around 19h to avoid long waiting lines. Outside could use some attention.

Easy access when booking on line -avoids queuing. The Audio guide is exceptionally good with a small tablet to show details of exhibits, ceiling paintings etc. Very good value visit to a quite stunning place.

We booked on line which was worth doing to avoid queuing. The audio guide was worth the extra few euros to be guided through the various rooms many of which are excessively lavish
