Arrange for a guided tour of the house. It is huge and is full of beautiful antiques. The design of the rooms and its entirety is lovely, great representation of the good life of the rich. Just beautiful.

The house is only visited on guided tours but that was good, and in several languages. The garden is equally beautiful

Just reviewing the palace itself(the garden not included in this) and it is interesting and you can get a good hour in there. Very interesting architecture with a good guide which explains well and answers your questions.
