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 decorating.

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 used for the colors in the paint.

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 because it is January. A couple of these rooms rival the Rubens rooms in the Louvre. It's a hidden treasure, so no big crowds. Staff was friendly. Highly recommended.

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 are so special and how technology assisted in the restoration process. Go. It's definitely worth a visit and it is off the beaten track so it wasn't crowded at all and fun.
