The tour is a personalized path into the enchanting rooms of the Palatine Gallery. Here the history of architecture and art is merged with a Baroque illusion. We provide you with an election of masterpieces because few hours are not enough to understand the development of three centuries captured on the walls of the Pictorial gallery. There are some paintings and statues selected to describe the movement of art through history, crossing different styles. You'll see art masterpieces by Botticelli, Raphael, Andrea del Sarto, Caravaggio, Tizian, Canova, Pietro da Cortona, painters of the Dutch and Flemish schools, and many more! The psychological intensity of the portraits is enough to provoke a Stendhal syndrome. Inside each canvas there are a lot of stories, landscapes, feelings called humanity. The narration of the wonder of the Palatine Gallery is a walk through history starting from the Late Renaissance.
