We were escorted by our guide to this beautiful museum in the Trastevere area of Rome, and what a pleasant surprise, to see the wonderful murals of Raffaelo covering every wall and most of the ceilings. The building itself and its gardens are lovely, but...More

The Villa Farnesina is hidden away between Ponte Mazzini and the Ponte Sisto on the Via della Lungara on the left as you head down towards S.Maria in Trastevere. The villa is in a small garden but I think the main attraction is the frescoes...More

Well worth seeing for art lovers and those keen to escape the crowds. Really interesting history as well as frescoes from Piombo, Raphael and Peruzzi. I crowded and beautiful.

We found this place just across the river Tiber in Trastavere as we were walking around and decided to visit . It was well worth it , a good decision. It was home to a banker Agostino Chigi who decided that Raphael could do the...More

Nice museum. Excellent artificial lighting to counteract the sun coming in the windows, lessening the glare so you can actually see the paintings. Interesting exhibits on the depiction of fruits and vegetables in the art and on the use of technology to identify the substances...More

When you see a review about a place with five rooms, you would think that wouldn't be worth it. But you would be wrong! This place was absolutely amazing, my husband and I spent almost 2 hours here, and didn't even walk around the gardens...More

We absolutely loved Villa Farnesina. We spent about an hour here (admission is 6 euros for adults and 3 euros for students). The restoration work is simply amazing the the 16th century frescoes are breathtaking. There are also explanations on why these paintings by Raphael...More

Yesterday I visited villa Farnesina. As it is well known, it used to be Agostino Chigi and Francesca Ordeaschi's suburban villa, a place for hedonistic yet cultivated leisure. Accademia dei Lincei does its best to keep this spirit alive: there is a little "giardino all'italiana"...More

Trastevere
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

I'm sorry as well. We were living close to the Vatican and walked there. It is near the Botanical Gardens.
