Choose between two guided visits for added flexibility: the National Museum of Palazzo Ducal, a masterpiece art collection housed over 500 ornate aristocratic chambers, or the Palazzo Te, a summer villa filled with sensual and illusionist frescoes. Or combine both for the ultimate in-depth experience.

The tour was exceptional due to the expertise and consideration of the professional, personal guide, Tiziana Portioli. If considering this tour, ask for her. She is worth every Euro/Dollar. Prepare to walk and I would suggest purchasing a guide of the Residence from Amazon and read it before the tour. It will assist your understanding and appreciation of the magnificent frescos.
