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.

The birthplace of the famous painter Raphael. Positioned in the heart of the old town and perfectly preserved since this became a museum. Frankly, aside from the fact that Raphael passed here only his childhood, the rooms have been restored and I doubt they have maintained the originality through all these centuries, but it is also exciting to just stand...

It is always interesting to see how people live or have lived and where. House of Rafaello is in the centre of Urbino, a small idyllic place with very peaceful athmosphere. It is also nice to sit outside and have a cup of cappucino or espresso. House of Rafaello is not too big, but gives idea of painters home. Typical... More

The birth place of Raphael (b.1483 d.1520), the Renaissance painter. Raphael's father was the court painter to the Duke of Urbino, so Raphael would've grown up here surrounded by painting and painters. I was surprised at how large the house was and enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies. It was very interesting to see the stand with mortar and... More

Worth visiting for a taste and glimpse of ordinary middle-class life in Renaissance-era Urbino. Only need 30-45 minutes here or so.

A quick visit, no more than 30 minutes, interesting house and paintings. You will not regret it. Urbino does not have so many things to do or see, so since you are here, you might as well.

The house is furnished with an assortment of furniture, bric a brac and pictures which loosely depicts Raphael's home. The building itself is attractive but the paintings are mostly by minor artists or copies but there are a few gems. A painting by his father and some pencil sketches.

For lovers of the great Rafael, his ancient house in Urbino is a real treat. You only need a half hour or so to tour the place and even those who aren't interested in Rafael will marvel at the medieval household architecture that has been carefully preserved here.
