  • It is a beautiful palace. It was the garden, though, that made me feel amazed. And the view from the roof terrace.  more »
  • Given the entrance fee is only €4 I thought this was a very worthwhile attraction. It is close to the other main sites & just minutes from the principal station, so slips easily into your itinerary...  more »
  • This palace and museum was built in the 1600s and redeveloped over time. It has 18 rooms open to the public, all of which are phenomenal. This is a gem, a kind of little Versailles hidden in the Old City and overlooking the busy port. The surroundings and entrance-façade are not so great, but the palace itself is just amazing, you cannot miss it.
  • Amazing place! Definitely worth going! It is a stunning palace of royals. A lot of rooms, wonderful garden, magnificent pieces of furniture. Pay attention to the ceilings - they are true masterpieces. Ticket is 6€, for people under 25 it's 2€. You will be asked to leave your backpacks and jackets in case you have them.
