The Palazzo (in fact a majestic suburban villa) was designed and built in 10 years by Giulio Romano, probably Raphael’s more important pupil, ordered by Federico II, sovereign marquess of Mantua. The area were the Palazzo stands used to be an island surrounded by one...More

Palazzo Te is not in the center of Mantua, but this is not a big town, so you can walk there. The Palazzo is in a park and when we visited it there were very few tourists there. I guess it's because people do not...More

The audio guide was an essential guide through this stunning palace. There are times when visiting palaces that yet another gilded ceiling becomes too much. Not so here. The frescoes are dramatic and absorbing. The variety is fascinating but the Hall of Giants is totally...More

This ducal palace was once magnificent, but is now mostly empty and neglected. Still, the art on walls and ceilings are worth the price of admission. Admission includes a visit to San Sabastiano. In both places most of what might have been interesting has been...More

Palazzo Te is a very nice place to visit in Mantua/Mantova. There are many very fine rooms with old painted walls and ceilings.

The main feature of this palace are the ceilings! The room “the fall of the giants” is also very impressive and very unusual. Don’t miss the small apartment with its secret garden in the gardens.

The location outside was ruined through time. The palace could be kept in a better state. However if at Mantua a visit here is a must do.

It was a good historical place to visit there are a lot of different parts of the palace that you can visit including the museum during the Gyptian era. My favourite part was the sections where they display the old coins and the secret garden.

Hi! If you decide to take part to a visit with a guide (strongly advised), it would take about 2 hours / 2 hours and a half.

it depends where you find yourself, the building is found as soon as he enters and it belongs to the center of the city
