You need at least 2 hours to immerse yourself in this huge castle as there are lots of beautiful art pieces which shouldn`t be missed.

The place to go in Mantua. Large Palazzo with adjacent buildings and gardens. There are permanent art collections as well as temporal exhibits. BIG place, you need to do a lot of walking, some stairs involved. Best if you have a guide.

You book the Ducal Palace time of entry. It depends of course how long you spend in each room before you arrive at the Sposi room and they do limit your time there, although at this time of year there will be fewer visitors... More
