Quick detour! Apr 16, 2011
Although the exterior of the palace is rather bland and boring, and it’s hard to imagine that it was constructed around the sixteenth century, the palace today is home to a fine museum. On the ground floor, there are some great marbles from the Roman period. On the upper floors, you will find some great artefacts and paintings. However, the most famous frescoes by Mantegna are no longer here - they were sold off to Hampton Court in England during the time of Henry VIII in order to help solve the estate’s debts. However, a rather respectable set of replicas have been produced. I thought this was a great little quick visit, and as you pass it while making your way to Palazzo Te, it’s worth considering as a little detour.
