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!

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!!!!! :-)
