Palazzo Ducale (Ducal palace)

Highly recommended
This masterpiece of balance and taste was built for Duke Federico by architect Luciano Laurana and Francesco di Giorgio Martini from Siena. Opposite the valley, a high facade pierced by superimposed loggias gives a superb panoramic view to the west of the old town, while to the east it has a harsh yet majestic appearance. The courtyard is a model of Renaissance harmony. On the ground floor is an archaeological museum, a library for the Duke and the palace cellars.
