Choose one or more items to build your trip:
Make your way through the streets of historic Todi to find the seat of the town’s magistrate’s court, a grand building which dates back 700 years.

In the heart of the historic town of Todi is the Palazzo dei Priori, or the Prior’s Palace, an iconic landmark on the town’s skyline. Its beautiful tower stands watch over the jumble of buildings below. Go to the palace to appreciate its ancient architecture and its current status as an administrative and governmental seat of the town.

The Prior’s Palace dates to the very start of the 14th century and the building has been many things throughout its lifetime. It once housed several governors of Todi, and was later home to the local excise office. Go there today, however, and you will find Todi’s magistrate’s court and administrative offices.

While you cannot venture inside the building without an official purpose, there is still plenty to admire from the outside of the Prior’s Palace. Notice the beautiful Renaissance windows, which date to the 16th century, and the regal bronze eagle which adorns the façade. It was crafted by Giovanni di Gigliaccio in 1339 and is today the proud symbol of Todi.

Navigate your way through the narrow streets with their muddle of historic houses to reach the Prior’s Palace. It is located on the scenic Piazza del Popolo. Have your camera to hand to take photos of the beautiful façade of the building from the entrance to the piazza.

"The view is stunning, the rooms are not. The staff varies some nice, mostly very unhelpful. The view makes upfield the horrible broken shower and the beetles in the room."
