Mantua's Ducal Palace

Highly recommended
This superb palace built by the Bonacolsi, and later enlarged and embellished by the Gonzaga, comprises several buildings. The palace boasts two real highlights: first, in the Palazzo del Capitano, the room decorated with remarkable sinopie by Pisanello; and second, in the Castel di San Giorgio, the extraordinary Camera degli Sposi (Room of the Spouses), decorated by Andrea Mantegna in praise of the Gonzaga. This fine work demonstrates the masterful use of perspective and trompe-l'oeil which are typical of this artist from Padua.
