  • By chance we knew about this building in a conversation and we made a detour of about 80 km from our path, but it was worth the effort. It is a magnificent building from the exterior, the Interior has a path through frescoed rooms and beautifully restored culminating in a huge Hall of geographical maps. Around a beautiful park admirable even in winter that leads to a nice hunting lodge (unfortunately closed) at the time of the visit was not possible to visit the underground part that has an interactive journey. It is simply disgraceful that such a Pearl is not absolutely hyped and exploited!

  • Palazzo Farnese is a piece of Rome. The whole Palace is splendid, but the piece de resistance, after the sale of maps, is the driveway that Alessandro Farnese (later Pope Paul III) had to withdraw to his chambers along riding the majestic staircase with frescoes.

  • Interesting. The castle is well preserved. Full of frescoes throughout. It has a notable porch overlooked environments. I was very impressed the sala del mappamondo.
