One of the best houses of famous people I have ever seen! Since Raphael is well known to everybody and is the most famous person born in Urbino - the visit to his house is a must. The house itself is very beautiful, you walk around and marvel how fortunate for Rafael was to be born in a family of... More

We all expect to see more of Raffaello, his life, relatives, and life in 15. and 16. Century. We need to climb up to the middle of a hill and to a narrow house. Inside, you will find a labyrinth of corridors, staircases and rooms. Some are small, some bigger, some with old furniture and interesting, some uninteresting with fakes... More

This is one of the major sights in Urbino. The structure is interesting and a complete visit inside and out is a must. The art is wonderful but not much by Raphael.

The birth home of the renown artist Raffael is well worth taking the time to visit on one's trip to the beautiful town of Urbino. A tour of the home provides one with an appreciation for the privileged background enjoyed by Raffael. One will also come away with an appreciation for the talent of Raffael's first teacher, his father. The... More

Considerably better than many "birthplace" sites. The pictures on view are mainly by the artist's father with copies of his own work, but the house is itself interesting and unusual. Well worth a visit.

Really enjoyed this visit and walk into the home of one of the real geniuses' of the Renaissance Art. Sit on the same window boxes, walk through the same doors and see where Raphael' father mixed his colours in the courtyard. They lived very well and the house is enormous for a family in the 15th century. Really enjoyed this... More

Casa Raffaello is well worth a visit since it gives a good view of what a mideval middle class home looked like. Check out the kitchen with the technical arrangement for turning the roast for example. And don't miss the small altar i the mid yard where his father Giovanni Santi taught him to grind the colors. There is art... More

Raffaello was born in a rich family, that what you can see in his birthplace. I don't know whether there is one original painting from him , or only good copies. Nothing special, besides the fact, that there are a lot of very interesting modern paintings!

This was our favourite tourist attraction in Urbino. The birthplace of Raffael, it is a fascinating house that meanders in every direction, with paintings in each room.

This as interesting museum, but it does not take more than 45 minutes to see everything. The exhibits cover several periods and some of the paintings as good copies. Worth the small entrance fee.
