Well worth a visit if you are nearby. The frescos aren't the finest I've ever seen but good enough to warrant a visit. They weren't done by Rafael himself but by his students. There is one fine drawing by Michelangelo also. This villa is a...More

Farnesina villa is extremely important as it represents the first example of renaissance villa in Rome, and many other took inspiration from that. Originally built for the rich Florentine banker Agostino Chigi, its historic relevance is great. I deeply appreciated the second floor with the...More

We visited the Villa on our last full day in Rome. In addition to Raphael's beautiful frescoes, we loved the 'hall of perspectives' by Peruzzi. What made the Villa even more special was that it tied together other sights and works of masters we had...More

If you're looking for a place to get away from the hubbub of Rome and all the tourist, this is it. We went here on the recommendation of Rick Steves, and we were not disappointed. It's a beautiful villa with lots of fantastic paintings and...More

Came by the Villa Farnesina, and so glad we did...Beautiful grounds, gorgeous frescoes and interiors, and a most interesting story of the man who created his masterpiece.

Great building with fabulous frescoes and very interesting displays about the importation of fruits from abroad, and their meaning in art ( much more interesting than it sounds). Building very hot, no cafe but several down the road.

This is an old villa built for a banker in the early 16th century before it became the home of a cardinal. It's decorated with some amazing frescoes, painted by Rafael among others. It's a peaceful place away from the main Rome attractions and seems...More

Rome is filled with tourists everywhere, particularly in summer. But Villa Farnesina was borderline empty when we visited. Local friends informed me that this is quite often the case. It houses in my opinion some of the most beautiful affreschi in Rome and the botanical...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
