The birthplace of Raffaello represents an interesting visit, even if not very special. The visit of the house provide a good insight of the life style of the time. Some paintings of artists of the school are also present.

Went here to see the house. Was interesting as something different to do. Only takes 30 min to go thru as is not a palace but rather house. Not much to do in urbino but this was 1 of the must see sites here. For me though, just the town itself is the highlight!

One of the best houses of famous people I have ever seen! Since Raphael is well known to everybody and is the most famous person born in Urbino - the visit to his house is a must. The house itself is very beautiful, you walk around and marvel how fortunate for Rafael was to be born in a family of... More

We all expect to see more of Raffaello, his life, relatives, and life in 15. and 16. Century. We need to climb up to the middle of a hill and to a narrow house. Inside, you will find a labyrinth of corridors, staircases and rooms. Some are small, some bigger, some with old furniture and interesting, some uninteresting with fakes... More

This is one of the major sights in Urbino. The structure is interesting and a complete visit inside and out is a must. The art is wonderful but not much by Raphael.

The birth home of the renown artist Raffael is well worth taking the time to visit on one's trip to the beautiful town of Urbino. A tour of the home provides one with an appreciation for the privileged background enjoyed by Raffael. One will also come away with an appreciation for the talent of Raffael's first teacher, his father. The... More

Considerably better than many "birthplace" sites. The pictures on view are mainly by the artist's father with copies of his own work, but the house is itself interesting and unusual. Well worth a visit.

Really enjoyed this visit and walk into the home of one of the real geniuses' of the Renaissance Art. Sit on the same window boxes, walk through the same doors and see where Raphael' father mixed his colours in the courtyard. They lived very well and the house is enormous for a family in the 15th century. Really enjoyed this... More

Casa Raffaello is well worth a visit since it gives a good view of what a mideval middle class home looked like. Check out the kitchen with the technical arrangement for turning the roast for example. And don't miss the small altar i the mid yard where his father Giovanni Santi taught him to grind the colors. There is art... More
