The best place to see Gubbio from above
Sep 2021
Unfortunately, it was not possible to enter the museum, but even just for the view it's worth stopping here to admire Gubbio from above.

Mediocre art collection
Jun 2021
I was not impressed with the quality of the art collection and also with the modern art exhibit which is presently housed there. The building is interesting and the view from the terraces breat-taking

Super cool old castle
Sep 2019 • Couples
It’s five euros per person for entry and worth every penny. Tons of old art and furniture and the architecture is incredible. Don’t miss this one Don’t miss the underground part

Treasure built in 1476 for Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino
May 2019 • Couples
This palace has a beautiful set of wooden doors leading into a courtyard with a number of rooms leading off it. Unless you want to be exhausted when you arrive at the Palazzo Ducale, you might want to take the lift up to the entrance.Walking towards the Palazzo, you may come across a garden of bonsai trees, which were just amazing! The palace is directly across the small piazza from the Duomo, where the statues of the Saints that are paraded in the Corsa dei Ceri (Festival of Candles) are kept. Unfortunately, we missed this festival by two days, but the whole medieval city was festooned with the flags and banners of the three Saints.

Very interesting!
Sep 2018 • Solo
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. If there is a special exhibition in the accompanying museum, go to view it.

Lovely Historical Palazzo
Jun 2018 • Couples
The palace was the residence of the Dukes of Montefeltro who governed Gubbio for a long period . There is a lovely courtyard with portico on the sides supported by columns. Excavations under the floor have found ancient constructions from the 10th to the 15th century eg pottery, fireplaces etc

Bare and uninspiring
Apr 2018 • Couples
The Ducal Palace was a square and stately building but was under some restoration. Alas the five euro tickets we bought was not really worth it. As expected the interior was quite bland although there did appear to be a temporary display on ceramics.

Wonderful and well worth the climb

If you have any interest in history - especially the rather complicated past of Italy - get to this place - it is stunning and so well presented.

How the rich lived
Sep 2017 • Couples
We happened upon the Palazzo Ducale by chance and although we had limited time to stroll around its 'jaw dropping' rooms before the place was due to close for the day we were so glad we found this treasure. The fee of 5 euros is well worth paying if only to stand and think about the people who once graced this magnificent palace. Kings, Princes, Dukes and Duchesses welcomed into its inner sanctum whilst lesser mortals paid their homage at its large reception room. If you have at least an hour or so to spare I urge you to find this gem and take in its history and sheer opulence.

Interesting little palace
Sep 2017 • Couples
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 the Gubbio bienniale in the loft. Nothing extraordinary, but very pleasant
