  • There are many sights in Tuscia, but Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola is really special. Its dominance of the village and the surrounding area, the original pentagonal five floors connected by a beautiful spiral staircase, frescoes and even the original floors of 500. The visit was entirely satisfactory thanks to the mastery, a mixture of skill and sympathy, our guide Paola Cimetta who made us relive with lightness and simplicity of the Farnese family history and their Palace.

  • I never thought that in Caprarola, village of 1000 inhabitants, there was such a wonder! Palazzo Farnese is truly beautiful, amazing, beautiful. We have pre-booked a guided tour and we were lucky: the talented guide Luca entertained us with the history of the Palace, the family and various anecdotes for allowing us to enjoy the visit. Likely to visit all day would not be enough but I assure you that what you will see will leave you amazed! A must visit
