You have seen many imitations of Renaissance frescoes on wall and ceilings but this is the absolute real thing, commissioned by the connaisseurs Gonzague in the 1400 s. They also collected Hellénistique sculpture. The coffered ceilings are amazing

Nice castle, great frescos, lots of history about the Gonzaga family. Nice collection of ancient artifacts and right in the center of town. If you visit Mantua, you must go there. Tickets cost 13 Euros.

We visited on a Saturday and the palace and castle were reasonably quiet. The frescos were stunning, although at 12 euro each the entrance fee seemed on the expensive side!

The Palace and the Fortress are nice and the paintings are very nice and worth a visit. The place could be kept in a better state.
