We had no problem, in September, securing tickets at the last minute at the gate! No queue, no wait, and no restricted time in the precious "Spouses Room" (However, this masterpiece would be well worth the wait for any art lover...) Do read about it...More

Please do not misunderstand me. Of course we were amazed by this masterpiece and we would have enjoyed longer if this would not be restricted to just 5 minutes! I mean, the Giotto chapel in Padua and the Last supper in Brera allows you a...More

Seeing the wall and ceiling frescoes by Andrea Mantegna were the highlight of our visit to Mantova. If you are at all interested in art, see this!

For €12 you get a ticket for this and the huge Palazzo Ducale. This is the highlight though. You have 5 minutes in the room so make the most of it!

The room is beautiful! You have to wait outside for some time and then you have 5 min to take it all in (timed by a member of the staff). They let in around 20 pax per turn.

Tagged as once the most beautiful room in the world we were keen to witness it ourselves. It was very pleasant. You are given a specific slot and have to go at your allotted time.

Must see the spectacular Mantegna dome with trompe l’oeil fresco. Beautiful frescos in majestic stairways leading to the Camera.

There is nothing like it and makes the trip to Mantua worth just on its own. It is a place where art becomes synonymous with eternal beauty.

Fantastic place, full of art and history. The tourist guide was really knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She told us a lot of anectodes and highlighted many interesting elements of the masterpieces.

To see Mantegna's masterpiece, you have to visit palazzo Ducale and castello San Giorgio. 12 euros well spent. Only a few people at a time are allowed in, so you could end up queueing for a while. In the room before 'camera pitta' you can...More
