Really beatiful villa with Rafael's fresco, not very crowded. Smaller scale sight which does not get you too exhausted.

Very nice if you are interested in frescos. Great opportunity to study them from nearby without masses of people disturbing you like the sistine chapel. Well conserved and worth the price. The only thing that is a pity is you can't visit the whole surrounding...More

This villa is a masterpiece from the Renaissance. See frescoes by Raphael and other legendary artists, then learn the story behind the Loggia of Cupid and Psyche.

When you enter this Villa you enter Renaissance. Built by a banker in 1500's, it is situated near the Tiber in Trastevere District. If you want to feel the opulence and the power of the Renaissance and add to it the fantastic frescos of Raffaello...More

Some of the most beautiful frescoes you'll ever see by Raphael, Petruzzi and Del Piombo. How anyone can give less than 5 stars for this museum is strange..

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

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
