Urbino Ducal Palace – Throne Hall and Roof Garden


The Throne Hall, on the noble floor of a Palace that is the emblem of the Italian renaissance, is a majestic room 35 meters long, 15 wide and 17 meters high at the top of the vault. The hall, meant to show the military and dynastic power of the prince, was indeed a “Holiday Hall” and was named “The Throne Hall” when in the room was placed the seat of the papal legate. The indescribable roof garden connects the Torricini side and the ancient Castellare side of the Palace. They are two places available for exceptional civil weddings.
