Book skip-the-line tickets for Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) and explore the marvel of medieval architecture and artistry.


Home of the Gonzaga family from 1328 to 1707, the Palazzo Ducale is a marvel of medieval architecture and artistry. Throughout their reign over Mantova, the Gonzagas added on to the original 13th century structure and created a complex of castles, palaces and basilicas. The current palace includes over 500 rooms, including a Zodiac Room, Hall of Mirrors, Apartment of Paradise, River Chamber, and Apartment of Troy.

In the 1400s, Lodovico II created a cultural center where artists such as Donatello, Mantegna, Leon Battista Alberti, Luca Fancelli could collaborate and create. Recent excavations at the palace have unearthed Medieval murals by Pisanello depicting chivalric knights jousting. The crowning work of the palace is Andrea Mantegna's Camera degli Sposi capped by one of Mantegna's best known works, a painted dome depicting angels peering down from the clouds.
