Ducal Palace of Pesaro
The Palazzo Ducale is part of the Pesaro Musei circuit and can be visited by participating in the guided tours organized by Sistema Museo.
Tourist guides, with regional license, accompany visitors to discover the most important Renaissance building in the city, linked to the lords of Pesaro from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century; residence, first of the Malatesta and Sforza families - the facade is due to Alessandro Sforza in the fifteenth century - then of the Della Rovere, dukes of Urbino and Pesaro between about 1523 and 1621, who renovate and expand the building. You can admire the apartments of the dukes, the Metaurense hall, the reception rooms furnished with fine period furniture made available by the Cassa di Risparmio di Pesaro Foundation, and of course the courts: the courtyard of honor, the hunting courtyard and the secret Garden.
The Doge's Palace can be visited for free by purchasing the Pesaro Musei single ticket (valid for Palazzo Mosca - Civic Museums, Rossini National Museum, Rossini House and Archaeological Area in via dell'Abbondanza). An extraordinary opportunity made possible thanks to the agreement signed between the Prefecture of Pesaro and Urbino - which is based in the building - and the State Property Agency, Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape of the Marche-Ancona, Municipality of Pesaro.
