Palazzo Farnese is really worth going to. What struck us was that almost everything was possible to see; rooms, gardens... All the paintings are really astonishing!

Friends reccommended me to visit this jewel of 16th century. I spent all my visit time (2 hours and half) with my nose up. Architecture is fantastic but the top are the frescos in all this palace. Amazing the geographic map room. They say that...More

Although I'm Italian, I must confess I had never heard of Caprarola nor of this second Farnese Palace. It is thanks to an old shool friend of mine that we were taken there. It's about one hour's drive from Rome towards Viterbo. What a beauty!...More

Very interesting castle that is pentagon shaped with a round internal courtyard, spectacular staircase and the map room from the 1500's left me awestruck. Huge tapestry wall size maps that were very accurate were incredible. Lovely gardens but parking and access are not well signed....More

Well before the Roi Soleil in Italy magnificent palaces were built and decorated with a taste and such elegance that coming to this place will amaze the most exigent of the tourists. Only 5€ the entrance but I would suggest to book a guided tour.
