“Worth the visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Dramatic but visitor friendly look at Raphael, Peruzzi and Sodoma.
Surprisingly inexpensive look at the real thing in the proper environment.
It is a shame the gardens are only partially available for viewing.

“Off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

The art in this palace is incredible. However, it's hard to get to unless you take a taxi. Definitely worth a visit nonetheless.

“A Renaissance Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Check the opening hours before you go. It took several trips to Rome before I got in. Frescoes are fabulous and I love the scale of the building. Haven't seen the gardens completed but I think they will add immeasurably to the experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

very nice and beautiful, but mostly just a great place to see what a 16th century palace looked like - beautiful works by Raphael

“A Trastevere gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

If you like villa architecture or High Renaissance painting this is a must. There is an informative and inexpensive book (available in a variety of languages) that explains the history, context and content of the frescoes. You will need this unless you are already an expert.
