Absolutely fantastic palace with great frescoes, including a map room. Wonderful gardens - with a fantastic garden extension at the top of the garden, which could easily be missed.

This very large villa/palace is an amazing place to visit, which till now relatively few do (certainly compared to the French embassy in Rome, when parts of it are open to the public). The richness is hard to describe (and there is a good illustrated...More

What a beautiful villa, with gorgeous paintings. The gardens were stunning and we were blown away by the Italian architecture. Highly recommend for a couple of hours exploring. Even the kids who were slightly reluctant beforehand really enjoyed it! Would recommend!

Well worth a dedicated trip. Staff are very helpful and opening hours are long. You can park nearby and the entrance fee is only 5 euros. The highlight is the extraordinary map room, near the end of the tour.

It is amazing to see all the high-quality frescoes everywhere in the palace, especially on the walls and ceilings of the spiral stairs. Farnese family seems to have accumulated a great fortune in the condottiere business, but I would guess that they spent most of...More

If you're going here it's going to be a long history lesson. The tour guide we had through our school trip could talk a dog off a meat wagon and we spend way too long here. Get in and get out unless you love the...More

A must see if you are near Viterbo, Italy. Originally designed as a fortress and later built to be a country villa. The villa, and the gardens are designed in the Italian Renaissance period style. The frescoes in the villa are colorful and add great...More
