Aka Palazzo Ducale. Next to (and sharing a ticket with) the Rocca del Leone fortress that you do have listed, but they need to be referenced separately; they are two very different attractions.

The frescoes tell the story of the life and exploits of Ascanio della Corgna who was an admired soldier in the 1500's , his uncle was Pope Julius 111. This leads to the enclosed walkway up to the Fortress . It was their private home

Lots of very interesting artifacts found locally and preserved in the museum for us to see and wonder at. The most highly decorated rooms I think I've ever seen in what was essentially a private home to the Della Corgna family.

Amazing history hidden between these walls. Well maintained and presented. All information displayed in Italian and English. Combined ticket allows you to explore the castle too. Good value for money!
